Event overview

Innovative and collaborative approaches to the delivery of social services will be critical in creating positive and sustainable change to the community.

At this important and timely event, join leaders in the sector to discuss the future reform agenda and the role of industry and civil society in achieving better social outcomes, including:

  • The design of Australia's welfare support system;
  • How to best deliver social services to the community;
  • New financing models, such as social benefit bonds; and
  • Strategies to address entrenched disadvantage.

Over the coming year, CEDA's research program will be examining the economics of inequality and entrenched disadvantage, including different models of welfare provision and service delivery.

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.

CEDA will continue to closely monitor government advice regarding public gatherings and will follow all relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
