SACS – What do you think about these changes to your sector?
The Morrison Government has recently decided to increase the cost of social and community services degrees by 113%. This is despite the need to significantly grow the workforce to meet our community’s needs. Do you have a few minutes to tell us what you think about the changes?
We are calling on the Federal Government to abandon its plan to increase the costs of Social Work and related degrees like Community Services, Welfare. Human Services, Youth Work and Counselling. In order to win this campaign we need to know what you think about these changes. Click here to fill in our short survey now.
We are concerned about the impact the change will have on people choosing to study these critically important degrees. So whether you have a degree, are currently studying or may want to study in the future, we want to hear from you. Can you take a few minutes to fill in our survey now?

If your colleagues, workmates or fellow students aren’t ASU members yet, it’s the right time to join – they can go to www.asu.asn.au/asujoin to join the union for social and community services workers and students.
And make sure you share this survey with all of your workmates or friends working in the sector! It’s critical that we hear from as many people as possible about this important change.
