Anti-Poverty Week 2021

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.

In 2021, Anti-Poverty Week are again supporting the Raise the Rate for Good and Everybody’s Home campaigns. There are two key things our governments can do to unlock poverty for individuals, families and children: raise income support to at least $65 per day and invest in more 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 five Tasmanian children grow up in poverty.
