Post Budget Breakfast CPAG and PHA Wellington

“Budget 2019 – Who’s left High and Dry?”

Each year in Wellington Child Poverty Acton Group (CPAG) and the Public Health Assocation (PHA) provide a child-focused analysis and commentary of the year's budget. CPAG and the PHA arrange a breakfast meeting to provide an accessible and affordable avenue for the community to come together and hear about how the budget affects children and young people, especially our most vulnerable who live in poverty.
