“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 the pre-pandemic rate of $40 per day... or the impact the higher rate through coronavirus has had on you or your family… or even your thoughts and feelings about the Government’s proposed cut to the higher rate – your stories provide people understanding.

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