Women's Experience of Income Management in the Northern Territory
During May and June 2011, Equality Rights Alliance documented women's experiences of Income Management in the Northern Territory. We want the views of women living with Income Management to be heard in public discussion of Income Management policy.
The report is available for download below. A printed version is also available. If you'd like a printed copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your postal address and how many copies you'd like.
This report does not make any policy recommendations. ERA does not have a policy position on Income Management. It is intended to document women’s experience, and was written for a general audience rather than being an academic report.
Understanding the experience of the women who participated in this research is important for those assessing the effectiveness of the Income Management program. This research addresses feelings of self-worth, ease of use, and understanding of how the program is intended to assist them in providing for the needs of their families.
