In this submission to the Senate Community Affairs Reference Committee inquiry into the Federal Government's Automated Debt Recovery Program ('Robo-Debt'), we point out the impacts on local people and services, call for the program to be abandoned and ask for an apology to Centrelink customers who have been impacted.

Thank you to our members and income support customers who provided information about personal stories which was included in our submission and also to people who made individual submissions to this important inquiry.
