New Survey: Concerns of a Widening Gap Between Australia’s ‘Haves’ And ‘Have-Nots’ – And the Impact on Children’s Education

A new survey commissioned by children’s education charity The Smith Family has revealed two-thirds (63%) of Australians are concerned about the gap between Australia’s ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’, with around half (48%) of Australians believing this gap has widened since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

The confronting findings have been released to coincide with the launch of The Big Giveback campaign across Australia this month, which aims to raise $1m+ in total for young Australians in need through The Smith Family’s education support programs.
