Australian Council of Social Service – Poverty in Australia 2014

It is unacceptable that after 20 years of economic growth, our wealthy nation is going backwards in the numbers of people falling into poverty. As this report shows, most of this poverty is concentrated among the groups of people facing the most disadvantage and major barriers o fully participating in our community. These include people who are locked out of the jobs market, single parents, women and children, people with disabilities, the old, the young, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and migrants.

This report includes stories and written text from those who experience poverty as part of their daily lives – because ultimately, poverty is about the real experiences of those who are in it.
