This paper was presented at Charles Sturt University to a conference of social workers who were employed by Centrelink. It consists of eight Relevant reminders; three Communities in need (a locational community; resource provision and community building in a needy community; and a community with a common interest or shared situation); and three Snapshots (a comparison of two citizens; employment and reality; and an analysis of jobs in one town). The paper argues for rural and regional investment rather than an (arguably) punitive approach to participation and mutual obligation.
