National Talkblack 181023

We had:

Mervyn Eades, Founder and CEO Ngalla Maya: Aboriginal Employment Access, having a catch up yarn with Trendy Trev about the work Ngalla Maya are doing.

PLO Stephen Grant and Senior Sergeant Glen De Lai from Edmonton Police, talking about homelessness. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, account for 20% of all people who are homeless. This is despite making up only 3.2% of the population. Low levels of education, high levels of unemployment, persistent physical and mental health problems and substance addiction all contribute to high levels of homelessness in indigenous communities.

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!

We would also like to thank the Community Broadcasting Foundation and National Indigenous Australians Agency for their support here at BBM 98.7FM.
