One Friend Away (Eastside Radio)

View descriptionShare

From Eastside Radio in Sydney, Poppy Dowsett, and Sharon Haritos show us just how close some of us are to crossing the line of homelessness.

Supervising production from Jacqueline Wright. Training from the Community Media Training Organisation. Distributed by the Community Radio Network.

Produced for the 2021 CBAA National Features and Documentary Series.

Housing in Australia is extremely precarious, with affordability increasingly out of reach for many. 

We hear plenty of bad news in this arena, but what is being done to address this situation?

Poppy Dowsett and Shannon Haritos of Eastside Radio take us on a very personal journey to speak to some pioneering Australians thinking outside the box when it comes to social and affordable housing initiatives.
