Bruce Bonyhady, President of Philanthropy Australia and Chairman of Yooralla, is to deliver the 16th annual Oswald Barnett Oration on Thursday 21 October 2010.
Titled ‘Reforming Disability Policy: From Charity and Welfare to Social Insurance and Investment’, the oration is presented by Housing Choices Australia, Hanover and Justice and International Mission, Uniting Church in Australia.
The major public policy reforms of the last 30 years have largely bypassed the disability sector and the current welfare and charity model that underpins support for people with disabilities, their families and carers is in crisis. There are strong parallels between Oswald Barnett’s successful quest for housing justice and the current proposal to establish a National Disability Insurance Scheme.
When: Thursday 21 October 2010, 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start
Where: Treasury Theatre, 1 Macarthur Street, Melbourne
