55 million calls to Centrelink unanswered

The Turnbull Government has slashed 1,200 jobs from the Department of Human Services and last year 55 Million calls to Centrelink went unanswered.
It’s simply not good enough. Thousands of Australians rely on these services each and every day of the week and their needs are being ignored.
Sign my petition calling on the Liberal Government to stop the cuts to our Human Services.

At Senate Estimates in October, it was revealed that 55 million calls to Centrelink went unanswered in the fiscal year 2016-17. This is an increase from 29 million unanswered calls in 2015-16 and 22 million in 2014-15.

Meanwhile, at the Budget in May, the Government announced it was cutting 1,200 jobs to the Department of Human Services.
