Sunday Afternoon Session - Forum on Homelessness
Effective Living Centre
26 King William Road, Wayville, SA 5034
24 September 2023 2:00pm - 3:30pm
The Progressive Christianity Network SA and Social Issues Group of the Effective Living Centre are collaborating to address the growing reality of homelessness in our community. A panel of presenters who engage with homeless people will speak of the services they provide, and of the current and changing ‘face’ of homelessness. There will be opportunity to ask questions and clarify any matters of interest or concern.
The Panel of experienced service providers will be:
Tameka Thompson - Tameka manages the Aspire Program at Hutt Street Centre, leading South Australia’s first social impact bond and Australia’s first homelessness specific social impact bond. Last year, Tameka was named as one of SAs 40 under 40 top leaders by InDaily. She walks alongside some of the state’s most vulnerable people, supporting them to make significant changes in their lives.
Tanya Roylance - Tanya Roylance is one of Orange Sky’s long-term volunteers in Adelaide and is a team leader and passionate advocate for the services provided. Tanya will discuss the work Orange Sky does within the community, and how it uses the power of conversation to establish connection with friends. Tanya will also mention the changes seen in the data between the 2016 and 2021 homelessness Census, and how that is helping shape the future of Orange Sky services.
Darryl Schintler - Darryl has volunteered on Fred’s Van for nearly 30 years and, until recently, was their Principal Volunteer.
