Life on a low income

Selina Claxton 1999, Cost of Living, Reports, Research library

In May 1999 representatives of Anglicare Tasmania, TasCOSS and the Poverty Coalition met to discuss their concerns about the increasing gulf between the rich and the poor in their community, about declining access to public services and the increased marginalisation of people on low incomes. We formed the Just Tasmania Coalition to work for a socially just Tasmania and in recognition that some of the solutions to these issues lie in local action. These reports are part of a mass consultation with people living on low incomes to hear their stories and their ideas for individual, community and government action.
