Anti-Poverty Week
11 Oct 2020 to 17 Oct 2020

 In 2020, the dates are 11-17 October. Each year we choose an evidence-based solution to be a focus and partner with the leading campaign/organisation in that space to take action to end poverty. In 2019 we invited the Raise the Rate campaign led by ACOSS as increasing Newstart and related payments is the single most effective way to reduce poverty in Australia. This campaign is aimed at increasing the rate of Newstart and associated allowances by $75 a week.
