“Storytelling is about connecting to other people and helping people see what you see"

Michael Margolis

You can help people see what you see by sharing your personal story. 

It’s through your story that understanding and empathy is built, and ultimately action to help drive change.

Help us make people understand what it means to live on JobSeeker.

Whether it’s the hardship of living below the poverty line on just $44* per day... or the impact the extra Coronavirus Supplement payment had on you or your family before it ended, your stories provide people understanding, and can help to potentially influence change.

If you have a story to share about yourself, a family member or friend, please tell us about it at jobseekerstory@bsl.org.au .
