Anti-Poverty Week will run from 16-22 October this year.  We’re working on our 2022 actions so check back later.  In 2021 we took action to increase in the base rate of working age income support payments to at least $65 a day, a 50% increase in Rent Assistance and a significant investment in social housing.  See also the Everybody’s Home or Raise the Rate websites to find out more about their current activities.
