Better Policy

BETTER FAMILY LAW

Our policy will ensure families dealing with child access disputes will be supported through long-term mediation and counselling programs to maintain healthy relationships and happy families post-separation.

HOMELESSNESS

We will end homelessness by ensuring every Australian has access to short-term crisis accommodation with pathways to affordable community housing.

CHILD SUPPORT REFORM

Our reforms to the child support system will overhaul how child support is calculated and paid. We will remove the financial incentives that are paid to parents who withhold access to children while ensuring on-time payments for parents who have private agreements.

FAMILY VIOLENCE REFORM

Our policy will enforce a zero tolerance approach to all family and domestic violence. Domestic violence legislation will be amended to ensure services and support will be provided to all victims regardless of their age, gender or sexuality.

NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE

Volunteer National Youth Service is a paid program for young people from the age of 16. The initiative provides life skills, social responsibility and community training to prepare Australian kids for adult life.

MINISTER FOR MEN

To complement the existing Minister for Women portfolio we will ensure Australian boys, men and fathers have a dedicated ministerial portfolio for men. A minister for men will ensure national male health and education programs are in place and appropriately funded.

MENTAL HEALTH REFORM

Our policy is about protecting vulnerable Australians who require emotional and clinical mental health support. These programs will be delivered through health wellness hubs that are managed within the community.

ZERO PLASTIC WASTE

Our Zero Plastic Waste policy will see government work with companies to remove single-use plastic packaging from the market,
while supporting Australian consumers through recycling incentives as we work toward better management of plastic waste.

CHEAP CLEAN ENERGY

Cheap, clean, renewable energy is the right of every Australian. Our policy will see government move quickly toward investing in reliable, low cost, enviromentally friendly energy production, transmission and storage to improve how we use energy in our homes and for transport.

FOOD SECURITY

Our food and water security policy is about ensuring Australian families have an uninterrupted supply and access to local healthy, natural food and clean drinking water in times of national crisis.

COMMUNITY CHILD CARE

Child care has become a financial burden that many working Australian families can no longer afford. Our community child care program connects families to low-cost child care services in their neighbourhood.

COMMUNITY EMPLOYMENT

Our community employment policy will ensure Australians on welfare are provided with training opportunities and paid work in
roles that support working families in their community.

DOMESTIC AID

Our policy will prioritise funding for domestic aid in the event of national emergencies to benefit at-risk Australian families. We
will action strategies to support primary producers to reduce their exposure to weather events and climate change.

AGE CARE REFORM

Our policy will improve how older Australians are cared for when they move into assisted living communities and retirement homes. We will ensure every Australian has access to low cost community connected facilities that maintain dignity and quality of life.

FOREIGN OWNERSHIP

Australian infrastructure, assets, critical businesses, farm land and residential housing needs to remain Australian owned. Our policy will see foreign ownership restricted to ensure our national security and sovereignty is protected for future generations.

Better Drug Reform

Our drug reform policy will work to treat drug use as a health issue while doubling efforts to reduce trafficking and illegal production. We support providing access to testing facilities for recreational users while encouraging safe choices combined with support and education.

Adoption Reform Policy

Our adoption policy will ensure that every child that needs access to a safe, nurturing permanent family home will have every opportunity to get one. We will work to ensure families seeking to adopt are afforded the support they need as they move through a family and child focused process.

 

Better Veteran Services

Australian returned service men and women deserve better care and support on completion of their military careers. Our policy will see veterans who complete a minimum employment contract or personnel who have been injured during their military service provided with housing and guaranteed employment opportunities that support their return to civilian life. 

Juvenile Justice Reform

Our approach to reducing juvenile crime will see offenders enter the national youth service program prior to re-offending. Our policy includes a nation juvenile curfew combined with redirection programs that focus on training, education and community engagement to reduce recidivism rates.

Fair Milk Pricing

As part of our Food Security Policy the ABF party supports the introduction of a minimum gate price of 70 cents per litre for Aussie Milk. We need to ensure Australian Dairy Farmers achieve a fair price for their product to protect the viability of their businesses, and to guarentee supply to Australian families.

Supporting Live Music

The ABF Party supports the establishment of an industry regulator to work with event organisers to aid in the delivery of safer live music events. We see the Australian live music industry as an important partner in our Better Drug Reform Policy.
