Living on Newstart: one year on

Posted on: Mon 18 Jun 2018

Just over a year ago, we met Aidan from Anti-Poverty Network SA.

At the time, Aidan was living on at $273 a week, caring for his grandma, applying for jobs and overcoming his social anxiety.

Aidan joins us again for a chat about the kind of difference a raise to the Newstart payment would make to his life and how things have changed for him, 12 months on.
