I still fall short every fortnight despite paid work and receiving single parenting payment. After rent, bills, car payments - there isn’t much left over.
The additional $550 has allowed me to purchase BRAND NEW clothing for my 2 year old for the first time.
I also no longer require food vouchers to buy enough groceries.
The feeling of being able to finally provide proper winter coats and boots for my toddler and knowing we both have full tummies everyday is beyond words.
Thank you for creating this page, it has been very comforting knowing that I am not the only one who has fallen on hard times.
