Belyuen Community Government Council Annual Report 2018-2019 17 | P a g e no money to buy food or pay rent) it has become harder for Council to help people transition from Newstart to paid work as many people have mentally dropped out from any work activity and end up disengaged from the community and often their family as they move in and out of Darwin dependent on family buying them a ferry ticket or a meal. Not knowing what the Grant Agreement is to provide employment services Council does not know if the Service Provider should be following up these people or if there is a big hole outside of work for the dole activity, Centrelink requirements and employment participation requirements. A hole that is creating more poverty, child neglect, domestic violence, mental illness, anti-social behaviour and criminal activity in society. Working for wages and having wages deposited into your bank account is a great experience for people that have previously not worked. That aspect of even a few hours work a week is generally overlooked in terms of a persons self esteem. Council will continue to help community people wherever possible to help give them employment opportunities. (Note: Many statements made above were made in the Strategy 3 2017-2018 Annual Report. They have been repeated here because they are even more relevant since the introduction of the Working with Vulnerable Persons Requirements have come in from the Federal Government) Angela Bigfoot and Maria Lippo Belyuen Elders showing bush apples.
