All Tasmanian social workers workers are warmly invited to join the Southern Regional Group for a networking event and presentation.
Guest speaker Meg Smith will unpack the Tasmanian State Budget and what the implications are for social work and the wider Tasmanian community. We'd love to have your company to talk about how the State Budget priorities impact on the community, social work clients and services. Let's sit down and discuss social justice, inequality and fiscal policy with Meg demystifying the economic and financial jargon.
Fiscal policy refers to a government's spending and taxation policies intended to maintain economic stability, which is indicated by levels of unemployment, interest rates, prices and economic growth (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fiscal%20policy)
