Anti-Poverty Week runs from 13-19 October 2019

Welcome to Anti-Poverty Week

Anti-Poverty Week aims to strengthen public understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty in Australia and globally and encourage action by individuals, communities, organisations and governments to alleviate it.

Poverty exists. Poverty hurts us all.  We can all do something about it.

Everyone is encouraged to help reduce poverty and hardship by organising an activity during the Week or taking part in an activity organised by others. 

More than 3 million people live below the poverty line in Australia, including nearly 740,000 children or 1 in 6. Globally 700 million people are unable to meet their basic daily needs and live on less than US$2 a day.

In Anti-Poverty Week, YOU can help fight poverty and hardship!
