Foyer Foundation are happy to support the Raise the Rate campaign, that is working to reduce poverty and inequality in Australia.
Raise the Rate’s goal is to fix our current social security safety net to $500 per week, that keeps Australia people out of poverty.
Research has found the poverty line in Australia, for a single person with no children as $500 per week.
Before the COVID-19 crisis hit the Newstart payment hadn’t been increased for 25 years, although the cost of living has increased over that time period.
We feel by raising the rate, it will reduce the number of Australians facing homelessness.
Join us in Raising the Rate and take action now.
