You can organise an activity within your community, school or workplace 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.
We working to confirm our focus for APW 2021. Ensuring all Australians have a home and partnering with the Everybody’s Home campaign was our focus in 2020. We will continued to partner with the Raise the Rate campaign led by ACOSS to ensure unemployment payments never go back to $40 a day. That campaign was our focus in 2019 and we welcome the Federal Government’s decision to pay an extra $550 per fortnight Coronavirus Supplement but are concerned its removal in late March (and replacement with $25 a week increase to base payments) will plunge more than 3 million Australians (including 1 million children) into deep poverty.
