Allowance Increase for Students, Youth and Carers – Is it enough?

A recent media release by the Minister for Social Services Christian Porter says that various welfare payments, which will affect youth and students, will rise on the the 1st of January 2018.

"The Government is acutely aware of the importance of ensuring welfare payments keep pace with rises in the cost of living," the Minister said. 

Young Carers WA would like to know if this is accurate and have created an online survey to research this, as well as the unique financial situation of young carers.
