Schemes and Systems

Cross-Sector Systems Project

This project developed the first conceptual map of Australia’s ten major benefit and income support systems that are used by people who are unable to work due to a health condition or disability.

As part of the report by Monash University, the project identified how each system connects, interacts and operates, including the movement of people between systems. It also outlines opportunities to achieve better work and health outcomes for people with a health condition or disability.

National cross-sector scan and analysis of employment services

This project conducted a national scan and analysis into how Australia's major benefit and income support systems use and engage with the policies and programs of services that support people with a health condition or disability to participate in good work.

The project was undertaken by Swinburne University of Technology’s Centre for Social Impact and provides insights into the best opportunities for alignment across services, sectors and systems. An original Typology of Employment Support Interventions was developed as part of the project.

Employers and Workplaces

Employer Mobilisation Project

This project involved two phases: quantitative and qualitative research and an evidence review of empowerment interventions. This project explored the behaviours, attitudes and intentions of employers towards hiring and supporting people with a health condition or disability.

This project engaged people with lived experience to understand their perspectives on navigating Australia’s benefit and income support systems, employer interactions and empowerment interventions.

Employee Awareness Project

This project explored how to better empower people with a health condition or disability to use work as part of their recovery. The project explored the attitudes and needs of people with lived experience to determine how they navigated Australia’s benefit and income support systems, and their interactions with health providers and employers.

Providers

GP Support Project

This project developed Australia’s first national Principles on the role of General Practitioners (GPs) in supporting work participation. It provides clarity around roles and expectations of stakeholders involved in supporting work engagement, recovery at and return to good work.

Partners
