Our alternative Budget 2019 vision is for a healthy society and a sustainable economy.

Our Alternative Budget for 2019 is an ambitious and fully-costed plan to help families live decent and affordable lives by driving down daily living costs and investing in public services.

  • To drive down the cost of living for families
  • To vastly improve public services and supports for families, older people, and people with disabilities, and
