Community issues and community services: Insights from the front line

Friday, 14 April 2023 - 10:00am to 10:30am

Jacques speaks with Denise Budge who shares her insights from her past 37 years in the community sector, most recently with Knox Infolink.

Denise talks about the issues affecting communities and people, and how the community sector is struggling to address the escalating need. Systemic factors behind this need include the lack of affordable housing, and Centrelink payments that are way below the poverty line.

Meanwhile, agencies like Knox Infolink that are 'picking up the pieces' are often highly dependent on volunteers, and this is becoming unsustainable.


Friday 10:00am to 10:30am
Think Again offers weekly conversations and reflections about current events, trends and public pronouncements on contemporary and emerging issues. The show moves beyond what we read and hear via the public and ‘social’ media, to invite alternative possibilities to guide our thinking, living and organising.
