Access to Services

Some low income households struggle to get access to the services that most of us take for granted

We assist people for all sorts of reasons. Some low income households struggle to get access to the services that most of us take for granted, especially in education, health, housing and homeless services, local government, as well as rural services.

Many community supports have been cut due to austerity measures. Sometimes new or increased user charges are the issue for those we assist; in other cases the service has simply been stopped.

We’re working to cut user charges and reinstate vital services.
