Author Donald Horne called Australia, ‘The Lucky Country’ - great farming communities, full employment, trade apprenticeships, affordable housing, low crime rates.

Right now Australia is going through a tough time - families are under pressure, values are deteriorating and Australia is getting weaker not stronger.  To get us back on track, we need some new voices in Canberra.

Since it was elected to the SA Parliament 11 years ago Family First has been promoting policies and introducing legislation which puts families first, values older people, promotes home ownership, protects children, offers choice in schooling, advances youth employment (eg trade apprenticeships) and supports small (family) businesses.

Family First’s starting point is that families come first.  As the fundamental building block of society, we diminish their capacity to function effectively at our peril.  The wellbeing of families is a powerful barometer for the wellbeing of the nation.

Family First also believes in the importance of values.  Values like telling the truth, living within your means, hard work, respect, courtesy, compassion, courage, generosity.

But when we see wastefulness, backstabbing, over pricing by government agencies (water prices, power prices, land prices) and politicians spending millions of dollars on themselves while health services are being cut and pensioners can’t afford to heat or cool their homes, we know there is a lack of values and a failure of leadership.

While Liberal, Labor and the Greens are fighting each other (instead of the nation’s problems), Family First is focussing on the needs of families, farmers, business owners, retirees, people on pensions and young people who are trying to get a start in life.

Australia deserves better.
