ACOSS Post-Budget Lunch

The inaugural ACOSS Post-Budget Community Sector lunch was a huge success!

  Postbudget Lunch 3Over 200 people attended the lunch, where the Treasurer responded to questions from participants and engaged the sector with a spirited defence of the Budget. Questions focused on the NDIS, on the payments for sole parents and on the small increase to allowances and whether these would become a larger increase in the future. postbudget lunch 1
