Brad Webb and the Steering Group for Anti Poverty Week NSW


Under the theme, Building Women’s Economic Security, the campaign – A Pink Hi-Vis Recovery – will draw attention to the precarious housing situation faced by many women in NSW and advocate for tangible policy changes that will improve lives across the state and aid NSW’s economic recovery.

Social housing can play a key role in NSW’s recovery, driving economic growth and jobs creation across the state; at the same time as building women’s economic security. This year Joanna Quilty, NCOSS CEO and Brad Webb, Castle CEO are pleased to Co-Chair the NSW Anti-Poverty Week (APW) Steering Group. The Steering Group is made up of organisations that are connected to their community and committed to ending poverty.

• Country Women’s Association
• Older Women’s Network
• Mission Australia
• Financial Counsellors Association of NSW
• St Vincent de Paul
• NSW Council of Social Service

Together with Domestic Violence NSW, Homelessness NSW and Community Housing Industry Association NSW, NCOSS has commissioned a new report from Equity Economics that sets out the evidence supporting our campaign and highlighting the urgent need to invest in women’s economic security by building more social housing.
