Struggles of living on a low income at Christmas

Posted on: Fri 22 Dec 2017

Christmas can be a particularly difficult time of year if you’re living on a low income.

Anti-Poverty Network SA coordinator, Pas Forgione, reflects on the stories he’s hearing from members at the Network, the challenges associated with trying to participate in the festive season and how these challenges can extend into the new year. He also explains how this year has been particularly difficult due to cost of living increases.
