We are in the midst of Easter, of celebrating life over death! As Fr Andy Hamilton SJ reflects, "the point of Easter is to assure us that our hopes lie beyond all those seasons and beyond the youth and ageing of the world we live in. ... Easter represents our hope that even after the winter to which the year is heading greenness will return. The memory of Easter is food for a testing journey.  It is about both memory and hope."
 
Our Easter newsletter is out now and is full of the latest news and information related to our work in providing a fair and just society for all Victorians. There are stories of our involvement in the recent Palm Sunday Walk for Justice for Refugees in Melbourne, an informative forum with members on the impact of social media and information technology on social services, a breakfast forum with Teresa Fels to explore social investment bonds as an innovative way of helping vulnerable Victorians and much more! There are many upcoming events that both Catholic Social Services Victoria is hosting, along with our member organisations. Read the newsletter here.
An extra 90,000 workers will be required nationally as spending on disability almost quadruples thanks to the NDIS. It is estimated that one in every five new jobs created in Australia will be in the disability support sector. VMCH Disability Services is part of an innovative work-placement program for students who hope to work in disability. The pilot program, called the Disability Sector Capacity Building Project, will provide disability work placements for about 30 students at its lifestyle and accommodation services that support people with disability until the end of this year.
