The Ceduna youth centre desperately needs shoes for about 80 school kids they support. These families struggle daily and the price of shoes for those living remotely is often more than they can afford. Unfortunately many families are on the Indue card system, which means they canโ€™t buy second hand. Weโ€™d like to help them out by sending up some new shoes for the kids to wear to school. Can you help us? We need kids sizes 3 right up to size 14 for the big kids. We need school shoes, sandals, sneakers, anything! We would love to give the […]

โ€œWhat do you do when you want something to look like a horse?โ€ โ€œUsually we just tape a bunch of cats togetherโ€ The Simpsons: Radioactive ManSeason 7. Episode 2 Homelessness is not a choice. It is a systemic failure of policies and laws, and of procedures and systems. It is caused by the failure of successive governments to fully, adequately and comprehensively address the issue of homelessness from the cause to the cure. Itโ€™s not as though they havenโ€™t had time. Governments are either cutting funding or ploughing it into an ineffective system that burns through funds without providing any […]
