QCOSS has made a submission to the Senate Inquiry into the Income Management and Cashless Welfare Bill 2019. The submission consists of The Cashless Debit Card Trial Hinkler Survey Results, Position Statement on the Cashless Debit Card Trial, and the Review of the Cashless Debit Card Trial and Evaluation (see below).
The federal government’s Cashless Debit Card Trial commenced in the Hinkler community (Bundaberg and Hervey Bay) on 29 January 2019. QCOSS is committed to staying engaged with people in the region. While we remain steadfastly opposed to the CDCT for any community, we will continue to support the community by providing people affected by the trial with information about the rollout and their participation in the trial process.
