The 2021-22 NSW Budget comes at a critical time. While NSW is progressing on the path to recovery, the economic and social impacts of COVID-19 will remain with us for years to come, through higher unemployment and increased disadvantage.
NSW needs an economic recovery strategy that puts people and community at its heart. NCOSS's Pre-Budget Submission urges the NSW Government to support the ongoing provision of essential services by ensuring a viable community services sector; and respond to rising disadvantage through enhanced funding for homelessness services and construction of social housing.
Full Pre-Budget Submission to be published in the coming weeks.
