Telling your story matters.

Do you or your clients have a story to tell about life on Newstart, Youth Allowance or other related payments?

TasCOSS invites those with lived experience to attend a public session in your area to tell your story in person. RSVPs are not required.

A Senate Inquiry is currently taking submissions into whether payments such as Newstart are adequate. First-hand stories from people with experience of living on these types of payments, the decisions you need to make, and how you budget for necessities are all extremely valuable for the Senate Committee to hear and consider.

Things to think about

Submissions are due on Friday 13 September 2019. For more information, please contact Dr Charlie Burton, Policy Manager, on (03) 6169 9514 or  email Charlie — OR — Philippa Dixon, Policy Officer, on (03) 6169 9518 or email Philippa.
