Coronavirus stimulus package announced for welfare recipients

13 Mar, 2020

Imagine facing this pandemic without any financial resources. That’s the reality for many CAP clients, but you can help!

As the coronavirus spreads across Australia, there’s increased risk for already vulnerable people, particularly CAP clients, who are facing the pandemic without financial resources.

CAP welcomes the Government’s announcement of a $750 cash stimulus payment for those on Newstart, the disability support pension, carers’ allowance, youth allowance, veterans support payments, family tax benefits, the Commonwealth senior health card-holders and aged pensioners. This a positive step and it’s good to see the Government considering the poor in their decision.

But the aftershocks of the virus will be felt for a while. This will be a very hard and stressful time for CAP’s clients. It’s hard to know what to do in moments like this. The good news; there IS something you can do!
