These are some notes I wrote on the future of human services and social care following a leadership forum with the Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services.
“Health, social care (community services) and education are all going through massive transformation -basically being rewired from the ground up – at a time when demand is growing and their joint and several economic significance in terms of generating jobs and contributing to economic growth, both directly and indirectly, is growing rapidly too. It is truly a perfect storm. It also creates a “double jeopardy” for change and renewal, in the sense that rising demand, and the need for deep structural change across the entire industry are happening at the same time. Obviously those two phenomena are linked.”
