Housing is a child safety issue

When it comes to protecting children, we never give up.

The current economic climate is making it impossible for some families to survive. Barnardos are calling on the Federal Government to shift some of the priorities outlined in the budget and seriously consider on the impact of children when making their decisions about where the money goes.

We welcome the acknowledgment and support from the Federal Government that issues affecting women and children like domestic and family violence, poverty, homelessness and the cost of living are at critically high levels.

But we need more than acknowledgement and the relatively small investment the budget promises if we are to end poverty, homelessness and violence towards women and children.

An additional $20 per week for those families on Jobseeker payments will not help in a meaningful way.
