Society of St Vincent de Paul launches its Pre Budget Submission 2020

In work poverty is an emerging issue for the people we assist, says the Society of St Vincent de Paul in its Pre Budget Submission for Budget 2020 launched on June 18th, 2019.

Called “Investing in a Just Society”,  the submission says that increasing supports to ensure an adequate income for those in and out of employment is one of the measures that will make a real difference in the lives of people who are trying to break out of poverty.

SVP says that it is calling on Government to take a radical approach to reducing the number, now almost 800,000, who are living below the poverty line.
