Welcome to the third episode of our new podcast, CroakeyVOICES.
Homelessness in the time of COVID 19 has some special challenges. Who can stay home when you don’t have a place to call your own? How can you keep a safe social distance when life is a day-to-day battle to survive?
We hear from the South Australian State Manager of NEAMI, Kim Holmes, about her state’s quick response to the needs of the homeless and University of South Australia researcher Alison Barrett talks about the national response to date (and read more in her latest COVID-19 wrap).
And we also hear about the power of music. GP and health blogger Dr Tim Senior speaks of the healing power of his viola and learning the strength of community from his patients at the Tharawal Aboriginal Corporation Community Controlled Health Service in South West Sydney.
