Free webinar: Work, care and social security – Making it work for children and families

Much has changed since Bob Hawke’s 1987 claim that no Australian child would live in poverty by 1990. Yet more than one in six children live in poverty, and those in sole parent families are more than three times as likely to do so as children in couple families. So, what needs to be done to tackle child and family poverty?

At this free webinar hosted by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, Dina Bowman will discuss with Professor Peter Whiteford, Emeritus Professor Bettina Cass and others the intersections of family payments with care, work and income support.

When: Tuesday, 28 June 2022 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Cost: Free
