Who We Are
The Collaborative Partnership is a national system-wide collaboration between the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Working together we can break down barriers in our systems and culture to enable more Australians to engage in good work.
Annual social and economic impacts of work incapacity in Australia:
People unable to work due to ill health, injury or disability and received income support

in one year
Note: estimates from 2015/16
We’re driving positive change in these areas:
The time is now to make real and sustainable change, to ensure that no person is left behind.
Every Australian should have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits that working brings, to financially provide for themselves and their loved ones.
Every system, sector and leader has a role to play to ensure this happens.
