Charities Want JobKeeper Scheme Extended

by | Wed, Jun 3 2020

Charities are pushing for the JobKeeper scheme to be extended, until at least past October.

A new report predicts 200,000 jobs in the sector will be lost, unless COVID-19 financial relief is extended.

Centre for Social Impact chief executive Kristy Muir says there is other action that can be taken.

She suggests “a charity transformation fund to help support charities in this recovery process” and “increased funding and longer-term funding for government-contracted services, to truly reflect the cost of delivering those services”.

The number of people on unemployment benefits has risen by 300,000 over the past month.
