Sydney Alliance Agenda for the Common Good March 2014 – June 2015

Jobs for the Common Good (WorkingStart!)

Supporting disadvantaged communities with good jobs that change lives. We’ll start with a specific ask in Glebe, that once evaluated, can be taken to all parts of the city.

We’ll ask the Minister for Citizenship and Communities, and Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Victor Dominello to:

  • Fund a pilot of an Employment Support Worker to work in Glebe and surrounding suburbs for three years- at a cost of approximately $150,000 per year;
  • Contribute funding to an evaluation of this innovation at a one off cost of approximately $50,000; and
  • Facilitate a cross portfolio expansion of this innovation so the role can be expanded to other communities.
