BCCM submission

BCCM’s submission, the third submission to the Human Services Inquiry, expanded on the experience of Australia’s co-operatives and mutuals facing significant barriers, limiting their full participation in human services.

BCCM argues for diversity in both the number and type of providers in the human services markets to promote competition, contestability and user choice.

The submission highlights the important role of co-ops and mutuals in contributing to diversity, and makes recommendations to address to the barriers inhibiting the growth and development of co-ops and mutuals.
