End Child Poverty

This Antipoverty  Week PPCG is joining people across the country to call for the end of child poverty. It’s not OK that 1 in 6 children in our communities are living in poverty. All children deserve an equal opportunity to play, learn, and thrive, but the reality is that kids living with financial hardship miss out on important opportunities like school camps and sports teams, and have to deal with significant challenges such as food insecurity, housing insecurity and lack of access to adequate clothing, technology and other essentials. 

Poverty not a choice made by families, its is a result of structural and policy failures such as chronically low income support and the lack of affordable housing. Melbourne is the 5th most unaffordable housing market in the world, yet rent assistance hasn’t increased beyond inflation rates since 2000.

We can and should be doing more. Let’s call for change together!
