- IaC Week
The Brotherhood of St Laurence has been working for an Australia free of poverty since the 1930s.
Through research, services and advocacy, we help people experiencing disadvantage at all stages of life, empowering them to build a better future.
We focus on people who are at risk at four critical stages in their lives:
1 Children and families in the early years, both at home and in school
2 Young people in the years through school to work and further education
3 Adults seeking employment and training
4 Older people facing the challenges of retirement and ageing
Within this broad framework, we pay particular attention to issues relating to refugees and settlement and financial inclusion.
The Brotherhood campaigns for change to break the cycle of poverty, and develops forward-looking programs for individuals and families in need, which are often then adopted by other community organisations and governments.
We aspire to be an influencing organisation and a national voice on poverty and disadvantage; engaging with key decision makers in government, business and the community, and enlisting the support of a broader audience in order to achieve social change.
