A new system for better employment and social outcomes: report of the Reference Group on Welfare Reform to the Minister for Social Services

McClure report
25 February 2015

This review’s purpose was to identify how to make Australia’s welfare system fairer, more effective, coherent and sustainable and encourage people to work.

Overview

The review, which was led by Patrick McClure AO, provides a comprehensive analysis and set of recommendations on simplification of Australia’s welfare system.

It recommends an integrated approach which builds on four pillars of reform:

  • Simpler and sustainable income support system
  • Strengthening individual and family capability
  • Engaging with employers
  • Building community capacity

The Government will consider the Report’s recommendations and will make further decisions on these as part of a longer term vision of Australia’s welfare system.
