Low income families and the long term unemployed
Employment is a significant factor in our wellbeing. Employment provides financial independence, improves our physical and mental health, expands our social networks and builds our skills.
On the flip side, long term unemployment or underemployment negatively impacts our wellbeing. It contributes to poor mental and physical health, social isolation and poverty. And it can negatively impact the wellbeing of our children.
People affected by domestic or family violence or abuse
We all expect to be treated with respect and fairness by our partners and in our families. Yet domestic violence is the leading contributor to death, disability and ill-health in Australian women aged 15-44. Children exposed to domestic or family violence are at increased risk of mental health, behavioural and learning difficulties.
