Share your story about Newstart, Youth Allowance or other support payments.
Nearly one million people in Australia receive income support through Youth Allowance or Newstart. That means that every day, nearly one million people are struggling to survive on payments that are barely enough to scrape by on, missing out on basics like healthy food or medicines. Personal stories change hearts and minds. That’s why we’re asking you to share your personal story about struggling to get by on Newstart or Youth Allowance, so that we can tell stories that show just how urgently we need to Raise the Rate. ACOSS will contact you before publishing or using your story.
