The first meeting of the Community Response Task Force was held in Melbourne to provide the Not for Profit sector with an opportunity to discuss the impact of the global financial crisis on vulnerable Australians with the Rudd Government.

The Community Response Task Force was established to give the Rudd Government first hand knowledge of what is happening on the ground in the community, particularly in disadvantaged households.

The Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, Jenny Macklin and the Parliamentary Secretary for Social Inclusion and the Voluntary Sector, Senator Ursula Stephens met with the membership of the Community Response Task Force, which includes:

Patricia Faulkner Australian Social Inclusion Board

Clare Martin ACOSS
Kasy Chambers Anglicare
Frank Quinlan Catholic Social Services
David Eldridge Salvation Army

David Thompson Jobs Australia
Sue-Anne Wallace Fund Raising Institute of Australia
David Crosbie Mental Health Council of Australia
Toby Hall Mission Australia
Voula Messimeri Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils of Australia
Marian Gaynor Australian Council of Trade Unions

The government says the meeting was an opportunity to outline the steps taken to assist redundant workers and their families, support jobs by investing in infrastructure and training and support the work of the Not for Profit sector, including through an increase in the amount of Emergency Relief funding.
