  • A Budget that divides the nation: ACOSS 2014-15 Budget analysis
    • Abstract: Australian Council of Social Service.
      Instead of repairing the national finances, the 2014-15 Budget divides our country. Rather than bringing us together in a truly fair, shared effort, this Budget entrenches divisions in our community: between young and old and people on high incomes and those struggling to make ends meet. It threatens to destroy the social safety net that has served our nation well - with severe cuts to essential areas such as health, disability support, income support, community services and housing programs. The budget will damage far more than it repairs.

  • Budget Priorities Statement 2014-15
    • Abstract: Australian Council of Social Service.
      ACOSS recognises the very real fiscal challenges that we face as a nation. With declining revenues and an ageing population, now is the right time for a comprehensive review of government revenue and expenditure. We need to set the Budget on a sustainable path for the future. This work needs to be done carefully and in appropriate stages to avoid negative impacts.

  • Budget Priorities Statement 2017-18
    • Abstract: Australian Council of Social Service.
      The Federal Budget is much more than an accounting exercise. It is ultimately about people and our communities, and the priorities and goals we set for our country. The choices made in the budget tell us what the government of the day stands for and the goals it wishes to pursue on our behalf.

  • Budget analysis 2016-17
    • Abstract: Australian Council of Social Service.
      The 2016-17 Budget comes at a challenging time for public policy. Economic growth remains sluggish as the economy transitions away from the mining boom. Governments face fiscal pressures both from this economic adjustment and from the ageing population. At the same time, core Government services and payments are not meeting the community's needs. Our health, education, disability, aged care and community services are under strain and the gaps in our social security system are leaving many vulnerable people exposed to poverty and financial stress.

  • Budget analysis 2015-16
    • Abstract: Australian Council of Social Service.
      The impacts of this Budget must be assessed in light of the previous Budget, which casts a long shadow. While the 2015-16 Budget delivered welcome new investment in early childhood education and care and charted a fairer path on pension reform, the combined effect of the two budgets is to leave people on low incomes to once again bear the burden of Budget restraint.

  • Budget Priorities Statement 2016-17
    • Abstract: Australian Council of Social Service.
      The 2016-17 Budget will be the first budget handed down by the current Treasurer under the leadership of the Prime Minister Turnbull. It will take place in a federal election year, in the context of major reform processes of taxation and federation arrangements and against the backdrop of a broader debate about economic reform. Key stakeholders have worked hard to build some common ground in this debate, including on the need to achieve structural budget balance progressively through a staged reform process over a ten year period. Business, union and community groups have also agreed that this should be achieved through a combination of tax and expenditure reforms, while creating space to address some serious holes in the social safety net including an increase to the unemployment benefit.

  • Budget Priorities Statement 2015-16
    • Abstract: Australian Council of Social Service.
      The Federal Government faces a clear choice in approaching the 2015-16 Budget. It can continue down the path it set in the 2014-15 Budget - in which spending cuts were chosen to restore Budget balance, which imposed the heaviest burden on those with the least capacity to carry such a burden. This was the approach ACOSS urged the Government to avoid in our previous Federal Budget Submission 2014-15.
