Welcome to Anti-Poverty Week

In 2020, Anti-Poverty Week will be held from the 11th to the 17th of October. This year we are supporting affordable housing for all as the best solution to reducing poverty and partnering with the Everybody’s Home campaign. We are also continuing to support the Raise the Rate campaign led by ACOSS to ensure that unemployment payments never go back to $40 a day.

We welcome the Government’s decision to pay an additional $550 per fortnight Coronavirus Supplement but are deeply concerned this increase is due to end on 24 September.
