This report details the financial position of Australian households using the latest ABS Survey of Income and Housing and other data sources.

The report places emphasis on the financial position of households where the main source of income is the New Start Allowance and job-seeker Youth Allowance Payments.

The report finds that these households experience much greater rates of poverty and financial stress than other household types. This report was commissioned by the Major Church Providers – Anglicare Australia, UnitingCare Australia, The Salvation Army and Catholic Social Services Australia.
