Our Aim

NWRN member organisations, individual Welfare Rights centres and services throughout Australia, aim to reduce poverty, hardship and inequality in Australia by:

  • providing casework advice and assistance to individuals to ensure they can exercise their rights, fulfil their obligations, meet their responsibilities and maximise their entitlements under the Australian social security system; and
  • advocating for the maintenance of a social security system that has rights and entitlements, obligations and responsibilities, detailed under and protected by law.
