    Event description

    The ACOSS Post Budget Event is the key annual event for civil society and the community services sector, providing a space for attendees to receive briefings on key budget measures and their likely impacts on people experiencing poverty and inequality. The event facilitates the opportunity for the community sector to engage in conversation following the release of the Federal Budget. 

    The event will be addressed by Treasurer Jim Chalmers, followed by a comprehensive ACOSS analysis, closing with a panel discussion where speakers will share their expertise and perspectives on the Budget and economy. You have the chance to participate in meaningful dialogue with speakers and fellow attendees in the wake of the Budget’s release.

    The ACOSS Post Budget Event serves as a crucial platform for examining the pivotal question: Does the 2024 Federal Budget effectively address Australia's pressing social and economic challenges?
