Poverty

A caring society protects people and their families from falling into poverty.

1 in 6 children in Australia live in poverty. More than 100,000 Australians will experience homelessness this year - and millions more are in housing stress right now.

In a wealthy country like Australia, this is not ok. A fair, just and kind society protects people and their families from falling into poverty.

The Greens are the only party who have stood up to parties seeking to cut payments to single parents and have led the way with legislation to increase payments such as Newstart Allowance.

The Greens opposed the harsh cuts delivered by the Abbott/Turnbull Governments and have set out a clear path to tax reform that provides the revenue needed to increase our supply of social housing and end rough sleeping.
