Poverty & Disadvantage

Poverty and disadvantage has an impact on all aspects of life; well-being, poorer health, ability to participate in community and access to education and employment.

Our aim in this program area is to address underlying problems that give rise to poverty and disadvantage, and to find ways to strengthen systems, services, communities and individuals to prevent poverty and to reduce disadvantage for those who are most at risk.
