The State of Concessions in South Australia

The South Australian state government provides concessions (discounts and subsidies) for people living on very low incomes and struggling with affordability of essential services.  However, this SACOSS report examines a range of state government concessions and a confusing patchwork in need of serious reform. There are inconsistencies in eligibility across the system, and some concessions create poverty premiums or have barriers to accessing support. The report makes 3 overarching recommendations for system reform, and a number of proposals for changes to specific concessions.
