Centrelink payment changes
STRUGGLING parents in Rockhampton may soon be forced to quarantine some of their Centrelink payments, with changes to social security legislation passing a new milestone in the House of Representatives this week.
The proposed changes aim to improve living conditions for struggling families and children facing neglect and abuse in Rockhampton and nine other cities, and could apply to 1000 people in the Rockhampton Regional Council area.
Member for Capricornia Kirsten Livermore was involved in getting the changes to apply in Rockhampton.
