In Australia more than three million people, or 13 per cent of the population, are living below the poverty line of $433 a week (ACOSS). Many of the people affected are living in deep poverty - an average of $135 a week below the poverty line.

Anti-Poverty Week on 13-19 October is a yearly event supporting the Australian community to better understand poverty, and to take action collectively to end it.
