In this presentation Keith discussed present possible opportunities for private sector innovation in Working for Families delivery while simultaneously recognising the humour in a public servant raising such matters. Key to his presentation was the importance of Working for Families in the welfare system, that the costs to some recipients of receiving Working for Families can be high in many different ways, and that the solutions may partially lie in innovation in social sector agencies and those with a grounding in tax working together.
