Positive changes to Youth Allowance


This week the Senate has debated the Government's package of Youth Allowance legislation, a package that did very little to help young people, particularly those in rural and regional areas.

It was left to the Greens and other groups in the Senate to do something to save a poorly drafted piece of legislation. The amendments passed provide a much better outcome for students.

Now we need your help - you can lobby your government to adopt these positive changes to the legislation, and ensure it is passed in the House of Representatives.
