BLOW BURIED IN THE NSW BUDGET: FAMILY VIOLENCE, HOMELESSNESS AND OTHER VITAL SERVICES ACROSS THE STATE AT RISK

The NSW Government has threatened the future of community organisations that offer vital assistance to vulnerable communities, including family violence and homelessness services. 

This is due to the Government’s decision to set the indexation for some community funded services at just 1.75 per cent for the coming year, while wages are to increase by 3 per cent.
