Poverty & Disadvantage

Home  /  Grants  /  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.

Current Focus Area

The focus area for FY19-23 is improved transitions from education to further education and employment for Indigenous young people and young people from refugee backgrounds, aged 15 to 25 years.
