We invite you to join us in creating a society in which all Australian children have the supports and opportunities they need to flourish.

End Child Poverty in Australia

The impact poverty has on children can last a lifetime. It affects their health, mental health and wellbeing. Many children report missing out on essential items like food, clothes, housing and often friendships because they have to move so often. This is despite having parents who love them and trying to do their best.

In Australia, there is no national approach to ending child poverty. And we don’t know the true extent of children living in poverty, because we don’t measure it.

We are calling on the Government to End Child Poverty in Australia.

Join the call to legislate an End Child Poverty in Australia.
