The Last Safety Net

CISVic member agencies provide emergency relief services to local people who experience personal and financial difficulties. 

Some of this work is funded by the Department of Social Services.  CISVic have produced a snapshot of this critical service: Helping those on 'Struggle Street' and Ending the stopgap.

In the lead-up to the May Federal Budget, CISVic calls on the Government to retain current funding levels for this critical service: Peak body calls for Federal Government to commit to retaining “Last Safety Net” funding.
