The other Welfare Forum

You may have noticed that a conference on Welfare and Social Sector Policy and Reform is due to be held in Wellington on 20-21 June. The discounted advance payment cost to attend is $895. So I won't be going to it.

Instead I'll be going to the Welfare Forum being run by the Alternative Welfare Working Group on 20 June. It costs $8.95, or a koha. Beneficiaries can come for free.

The $8.95 Welfare Forum
Monday 20 June 2011, 2.00 – 5.00 pm
St John’s Centre, Willis St, Wellington.
Speakers include Mike O’Brien, Paul Dalziel, Sue Bradford, Wendi Wicks, Māmari Stephens, Kay Brereton.

To find out more or say you're coming, please email lisa@caritas.org.nz or phone 04-496-1765. To see the reports already put out by the Alternative Welfare Working Group, after they held public meetings from Whangarei to Invercargill in the second half of 2010, go to
