Submission to State Budget Community Consultation 2019-20

Selina Claxton 2018, Research library, State Budget, Submissions

Anglicare has chosen three areas of focus for this year’s budget consultation because investments in each of them now is essential to creating a Tasmania based on equity and social justice. We recommend supporting and caring for Tasmania’s children and families by focusing on supporting family preservation and reunification; developing parents’ voice in systemic and individual advocacy and providing care for unaccompanied homeless children. We recommend the State Government swiftly increase the housing stock by increasing both the amount and the speed of investments in affordable housing. And we recommend two years of transition funds to ensure no Tasmanian living with mental health challenges is worse off in the transition to the NDIS.
