Farming out the care of our own to others doesn’t work.

Why would we think it could?

When governments award contracts to for-profit providers from overseas, who is the main stakeholder in the deal?

I’m sick of conservatives in power basing their treatment of job seekers at least in part on the idea that ‘these people are malingerers’.

Surely this is the reason for the latest contract providing more of a stick than a carrot with demerit points lost for ‘misdemeanours’, such as missing appointments.

In a recent blog I talked about Duty of Care and Dignity of Risk, where duty of care refers to ensuring that the most vulnerable people in society are protected from harm while at the same time being challenged to achieve their potential.

Since then I’ve wondered, ‘What if we framed the conversation in reverse?’
