Anti-Poverty Week supports the Australian community to have an increased understanding of poverty and to take collective action to end it. This year, Anti-Poverty Week 2021 will be held from 17-23 October.

This Anti-Poverty Week we are reminding governments that there are two key things they can do to unlock poverty for individuals, families and children: raise income support above the poverty line and invest in social housing. Poverty affects far too many Australian children and families, diminishing their lives now and into the future. As one of the wealthiest countries in the world, it is just not right that one in six of our children grow up in poverty.

In 2021, we are again supporting the Raise the Rate for Good and Everybody’s Home campaigns. Here is some immediate actions you can take:
