Anglicare Australia has made a submission to the 2019-20 Federal Budget, due to be handed down in April.

The context for the next Federal Budget is an Australia facing growing inequality, and where the cost of living is rising faster than wages or income support. That's why it's critical that the tax and transfer system is reformed, and that income support payments are raised and restructured. These are key recommendations in our submission.

Anglicare Australia also made recommendations in the following areas:

  • Social security
  • Aged care
  • Disability and mental health
  • Housing and homelessness
  • Out-of-home care
  • Job creation and employment services
