We all know that financially things are tough right now. Cost of living pressures are acute for everyone, but even more so for people on fixed incomes, like Newstart or the Disability Support Pension, which is the majority of our clients.
In fact, there is direct link between poverty and both mental illness and addiction.
In a very real way, we are all fighting not just for better treatment and support, but for justice, because everybody deserves every chance to turn their lives around. That’s why, more than ever, it is crucial that First Step can provide people with all the help they want from one team in one place. And for free.
As we approach the end of financial year, please support our life-changing and life-saving work – every bit counts.
We will never call to ask you for a donation or for your bank account details. If you think you have provided your account details to a fake charity, contact your bank or financial institution immediately.
