A refuge from violence

Last Sunday was White Ribbon day, where we as a community, raised awareness of violence against women.

One of the side effects of fleeing violence can often be homelessness, and the immense job of re-building your life from there.

For over twenty years, Catherine House has been providing a safe refuge, and a bed to sleep in, for countless women who have needed it.

Sue Reece spoke to training services coordinator Joanna, as well as Rachel and Emily, about their upcoming play this weekend, and the effect it’s had on all of them.

The theology of same-sex marriage

Tomorrow is the beginning of the Adelaide Feast Festival. Fifteen days where the GLBTI community showcase themselves, their concerns and their achievements within the wider community.

We are all familiar with the opinions of some sectors of christianity towards the queer community, but what we may not all realise, is that those voices do not speak for the whole of the church.

Producer Sue Reece spoke to Uniting Church chaplain and spokesperson, Leanne Jenski, about the Uniting church’s spiritual mission to include the GLBTI community within their spiritual community.

Sue began by asking about how the Uniting Church has embraced this controversial issue.

Just because we care

Some things in life are unavoidable; ageing, injury, accidents, illness. But when these things do happen, it’s nice to know that there is someone there to care for us and ease the struggles these circumstances might bring.

In turn, each week hundreds of people face the shock of becoming someone’s carer. Whether it be a good friend or a loving family member, this is a life style change that many people face.

To acknowledge this selfless act, this week is carers week and to take a closer look at what it’s like to be a carer, Angus Randall chatted to Mark Butler, the Federal Minister for Mental Health and Ageing.

Radio Adelaide is a community radio and we support and encourage community at a time when  so many of us don’t know our neighbours, are estranged from our family, can count our friends on one hand, and simply endure our workplace as a daily grind.

Creative not destructive – Suicide Prevention Day

Sadly, suicide is something that many people turn to, and many others are left to deal with.

But how do we approach a topic as tragic as this? And how can we prevent suicide in Australia? The importance of hearing the stories and struggles of those who have lost loved ones to suicide is invaluable.

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day and Sue Reece spoke to Jill, Sandra, and Dave who have all lost people to suicide. They shared their experiences and their ways of coping with such bereavement.
