National Talkblack 100921

We had:

Linda Scott, Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) President, talking about how dedicated domestic violence prevention officers in local government can make our communities safer. Local government has renewed its commitment to preventing violence against women and children, saying it wants to work more closely with other levels of government to drive outcomes. “Violence against women is an incredibly challenging matter and there is still so much to do,” Cr Scott said.

Chris Graham, talking about the first 30 motor homes arrive in Wilcannia. 25 days after COVID arrived in Wilcannia and spread at a rate four times greater than anywhere in the country, 30 lucky residents will get to isolate in motorhomes to alleviate the chronic overcrowding that has plagued the community for generations, and about which state and federal governments were warned repeatedly.

Have something happening in your community, and you want to talk about it, give us a call on 1800 422 416. Or Give us a text on 0457 140 550!
