Anti-Poverty Week supports the Australian community to have an increased understanding of poverty and to take action collectively to end it. This year Anti-Poverty Week will run from 16-22 October and the focus will be on halving of child poverty by 2030.
Approximately three quarters of a million Australian children live in poverty, 100,000 of these in Western Australia. If all Australian children are to thrive, then child poverty needs to be significantly reduced – if not eliminated from Australian society.
We are seeking your support to promote Anti-Poverty Week within your organisation and networks by HOSTING AN EVENT.
By working together to raise awareness and take action on the issue of child poverty, we can make sure all Australian children and families can meet their basic needs.
