Our next Consultations Unpacked is around the  Productivity Commission’s More Effective Social Services draft report.

The Productivity Commission has been tasked with looking at current arrangements in Government funded social services, housing, crime reduction and more. They’ve issued a draft report for comment and this is your opportunity to join COSSD, Otago Law Centre  and Law for Change to discuss what’s been raised and what we have to say about it.
Available are the:
Following the meeting we’ll write up a submission based on what was discussed and organisations and individuals will be able to add their names to this if they wish. This is a big issue and we hope that this will be an effective way to have a say.
Different groups will see the issues differently and we hope to accurately represent smaller Otago organisations’ views.
Also available on the Commisison’s website are case studies on Employment services, Whänau Ora, Services for people with disabilities, Home-based support of older  a report on The economics of social services and Handing back the social commons, a report by James Mansell, an intereting read on information sharing to deliver better outcomes.
