If you are concerned about issues of equity and justice for low income Australians, you can help make a difference.
We invite you to Take Action to support ACOSS' work to build a better future for low income and disadvantaged Australians.
$35 a day is not enough!
It's widely recognised that levels of income support for people out paid work are simply inadequate. Allowances such as Newstart, which is currently $243 per week, is simply not enough for people to live on.
Please support our campaign to raise these Allowances and ensure better assistance and training for people locked out of Australia's jobs market.
The more names we can add to this statement the more powerful it will be when we present it to the Government in the coming weeks. Please encourage your organisation to add their name to the statement. If you are a member of an organisation that has already signed, please show your individual support by encouraging friends and others to take action on this important issue by adding their names as well.
