Anti-Poverty Week is will be 16-22 October this year. Check back later for more specific to 2022 APW – our 20th anniversary year. 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.
You can organise an activity within your community, school or workplace during Anti-Poverty Week this year that will help bring an end to poverty. Any activity, large or small, that helps people to express their interest and concern about any aspect of local, national or global poverty is encouraged.
