Anti-Poverty Week 2015

The ILC combined with the Warrawong Residents Forum and the Wollongong Homeless Hub hosted an event in Anti-Poverty Week 2015 on Monday 12 October at our Greene Street premises to raise awareness about the level of poverty in the Illawarra and the impact that living in poverty has on individuals, particularly those trying to live on Centrelink pensions.

We provided a little bit of relief from poverty with free food, music and a market place with lots of great giveaways donated by the community for the local community.

A great roll up of locals and the media focused attention on the difficulty of living below the poverty line. #APW15
