QCOSS survey shows increasing opposition to cashless debit card trial in Hinkler

A survey conducted by QCOSS on the Cashless Debit Card Trial (CDCT) in the Hinkler region, including Hervey Bay and Bundaberg, has found more people are opposed to the card now that the trial has been running in the region for several months. 81% of survey respondents opposed the CDCT outright, compared to 65% before the card was introduced. More than half of respondents were either on the CDCT themselves or have family on the CDCT. People with experience of being on the card reported problems with health or mental health issues, rent problems, stigma and discrimination, cards being declined and cash-only opportunities missed. Read more on the survey results, or view the infographic.
