Put Family First

Our starting point is that families come first. No form of human association can match the profound benefits of being raised in a loving, functional and secure family. As the fundamental building block of society, we diminish their capacity to function effectively at our peril.

The health of the family is thus critical to the health of society. In fact, the wellbeing of families is a powerful barometer for the wellbeing of the nation.

Families should be at the centre of our Australian way of life, not government bureaucracies. With the rising cost of living putting more and more pressure on families, Family First believes public finances should be diverted from expensive (high tax) government bureaucracies to families.
