dc.description.abstractInvestment in universal services in Australia can be perceived as "middle class welfare" and is highly contested. Middle class welfare includes government funds available to individuals or families universally such as the government baby bonus and parental leave entitlements. Using a case study method with a Communities for Children (CfC) early intervention program run by the Salvation Army, this paper shows that the universal provision of early childhood services has many benefits for communities and for the economy. The less stigmatised approach enabled through universal provision, can be particularly useful in building the skills and confidence of families.en_US
