Late on Friday afternoon the National Social Security Rights Network learned of the surprising and shocking news that our South Australian member service, the Welfare Rights Centre SA, was unsuccessful in the tender process for National Partnership Agreement funding. The Welfare Rights Centre SA is a longstanding, dynamic community legal centre. It is an award winning, specialist welfare rights service. The NSSRN is surprised and shocked that the tender process conducted by the South Australian Government could have led to this decision. We urge the SA Government to restore funding to the Welfare Rights Centre SA, the only specialist Welfare Rights Centre in South Australia.
