We are holding a series of webinars about key topics facing the community services sector in WA. The series will consist of eight webinars, running weekly on Wednesdays at 1pm, starting from 22 July 2020.
In this series, we are inviting input and engagement from our members, and the broader community services sector, into our initial thinking about what an inclusive plan for recovery needs to look like for Western Australia in order to leave no one behind.
Register for one, or for many – whichever are of interest to you. Each webinar will feature a presentation from WACOSS and some of our key partners, followed by opportunities for questions and discussion. Be sure to register to receive some essential pre-reading and the link to the Zoom meeting.
The care economy
Care work has a crucial part to play in Western Australia’s social and economic recovery. An investment into the care economy is an investment into quality public and community sector jobs. If areas like care work are not included as part of WA’s economic recovery efforts, the very real risk is run that we will inadvertently extend or further entrench that wage gap and fail to address growing need.
