The aim of Anti-Poverty Week is to:

  • Strengthen public understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty and hardship around the world and in Australia; and
  • Encourage research, discussion and action to address these problems, including action by individuals, communities, organisations and governments.

Everyone is encouraged to help reduce poverty and hardship by organising an activity during the Week. Please tell us about your activity so we can demonstrate how many people in Australia care about this issue!
