In 2020, NCOSS CEO and Mission Australia’s NSW State Director are the NSW Co-Chairs of Anti-Poverty Week (APW). With all that is happening in 2020, Anti-Poverty Week (APW) has never been more important to shine a spotlight on how we can improve living standards for people in NSW. After months of bushfires, drought and the current economic impact of COVID-19, the face of poverty in Australia has changed. This year APW is supporting two established campaigns: Raise the Rate for Good and Everybody’s Home.
We are calling on you to speak up and share your experience of how COVID-19 has impacted you or your community. Your video could highlight how increased JobSeeker payments are making a difference and should remain, the urgent need for more social housing, or other areas where you are seeing evidence of rising disadvantage and increased demand. Be part of a State coordinated social media campaign by joining us for a week of action to raise awareness of poverty in NSW.
