Being left out hurts our kids.

Poverty, social exclusion and disadvantage are complex and persistent. Child social exclusion means lost opportunity, disengagement and the risk of leading lives of unfulfilled potential.

At the start of Anti-Poverty Week 2018, UnitingCare Australia in partnership with The University of Canberra’s National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, launched a report which captures the multi-dimensional nature of disadvantage in Australia and its impact.

The report Poverty, Social Exclusion and Disadvantage in Australia analyses the 2016 Census and other data using the Child Social Exclusion Index, giving us a unique perspective through the eyes of the child.
