Federal Government safety net package
Today the Federal Government announced substantial measures in response to the crisis. Among these was a doubling of the unemployment benefit (for the next 6 months). We welcome this announcement for its capacity to alleviate food insecurity for people who will lose their jobs in the next weeks and months. However, hospitality businesses remain under extreme threat with the prohibition of non-essential activity.
We will be liaising with our network in the coming days to determine how the momentum generated via this campaign can be harnessed to help incentivise activity that contributes to positive system changes in these times.
Thanks for your support.
