Vinnies Election Statement

Take action for the NSW Election:

Call for Fairness and Compassion to be prioritised

The St Vincent de Paul Society NSW works towards a future in which each and every person can live a full life.

It is to our State’s shame that while we are seeing an unprecedented accumulation of wealth in some parts of the community, we are also seeing many people being left further and further behind. Too many families struggle to cover the cost of even their most basic of needs, leaving little room to think beyond the next meal or the next bill.

Whoever forms our next State Government should take the steps needed to break down the barriers preventing some people in our community from living well.

NSW is the richest State in Australia. Our budget is in surplus and we have very little debt. It is simply a matter of priorities.

We call on the next NSW Government to prioritise fairness and compassion.
