The Development of Quasi-Vouchers in Australia's Community Services

Buy Article:

$30.18 + tax (Refund Policy)

This article traces the development within Australia's community services of a method of government support for some of these services which is best described as a quasi-voucher. The essential difference between quasi-vouchers and more conventional methods of support such as grants and contracts is that the support is focused on the consumer of services, not the provider. After a discussion of vouchers as a particular set of tools for government action, the development of such tools is described in four major Commonwealth government programmes: child care, nursing home care, disability services and home care. The emergence of quasi-vouchers is attributed to interaction within the bureaucracy rather than ministerial initiative and the possibility that they might be abandoned in favour of some other tool is assessed.
