Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters MP will gather with community members, welfare groups and organisations at Bendigo’s Sidney Myer Place to call for a rise in the Newstart Rate.

“We are calling on the Liberal National Government to increase the Newstart allowance to deliver relief from poverty and help people get into work,” Ms Chesters said.

Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters is encouraging Central Victorians receiving Newstart payments to make a submission to the Senate Inquiry into the ‘Adequacy of Newstart and related payments’.

Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters is shining the spotlight on the importance and value of early education, this Early Learning Matters Week.

“Early education is vital because of the proven positive impact it has on the development of children,” Chesters said. 

“We know that quality learning experiences in the first five years of a child’s life play an integral role in their development.

Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters, will join 21 local recipients of the Australian Government’s Local Sporting Champions grants at a celebration ceremony at the Bendigo Stadium today (August 20).

“Playing sport at competition level takes passion, dedication and hard work.  It also involves extensive travel, training, specialist equipment and clothing, and as many parents have told me, all those costs add up.

Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters has thrown her support behind raising the Newstart allowance.

“Any one of us could find ourselves looking for work, or extra work, to make ends meet.

“Newstart is too low – it’s so low that people are being pushed into poverty and its preventing people from getting work.
