Policy Submissions

Nature and Extent of Poverty 

We made a submission to the Senate Community Affairs References Committee on The Nature and Extent of Poverty drawing on stories and data from a range of community services organisations and individuals. As a result of the submission, the Equity Project was invited to provide evidence to the Committee to share research and personal stories.

Measuring What Matters

The Lived Experience Action Group of the Equity Project held a workshop in May 2023 on Measuring What Matters to contribute to the Federal Government's consultation process. The group talked about what makes a good society and the importance of including, and measuring, social and environmental indicators alongside more traditional economic indicators, in government policy.
