Submissions and papers

The Don Dunstan Foundation seeks to provide advice to policy decision-makers on issues that are important to our work and that impact on vulnerable groups in our community. This is often done by making submissions to public consultations or inquiries run by government or statutory authorities.

Submissions range from broad statements of principle to detailed and technical policy advice.
