Anti-Poverty Week 2016: Recent reports and related resources

20 October 2016

In recognition of Anti-Poverty Week we’ve brought together recent reports & related resources that focus on poverty & disadvantage in Australia.

Anti-Poverty Week is a week where all Australians are encouraged to organise or take part in an activity aiming to highlight or overcome issues of poverty and hardship. It was established in Australia as an expansion of the UN's annual International Anti-Poverty Day on October 17. Further information is available on the Anti-Poverty Week website.

The resources below focus on the issues of poverty and disadvantage, and how they relate to child, family and community welfare.
