It is never easy being on a low income. But COVID made life harder for so many of us, with huge job losses, and more people than ever before having to live on brutally low welfare payments, and deal with the stress of Centrelink and Job Active.
Many people missed out on extra financial support during COVID, like carers and pensioners (and some people, like migrants, receive no income support at all).
People on JobSeeker and students, after a few months of being lifted out of poverty through the COVID Supplement, have had their incomes cut repeatedly, and on April 1, lost another $50 a week, with their incomes dropping to $44 a day ($311 a week), This is a $250 a week loss since the end of September.
This means paying for rent and food and medicine will again become impossible.
Anti-Poverty Network SA is a community group, made up of unemployed people, pensioners, carers, students, sole parents, migrants, and others on low incomes, campaigning for dignity and justice.
With record-breaking numbers of people living in poverty, and so few jobs available, it has never been more important for us to come together and speak out.
This Welcome Session is for people to learn more about what we do, and how they can get involved.
You can join us face-to-face (The Joinery, 111 Franklin Street), or from your computer.
