What’s keeping Radio National Presenter Susan Ryan awake at night? It’s the nightmarish image of Australians arriving at the end of a long and hard-working life to find that they have nowhere to live. In her insomnia she fears that our streets and parks will overflow with decent older people, sleeping on newspapers and cardboard boxes, people who have worked all their lives and yet they can’t afford rent.
On 8 October 2016 Susan Ryan hosted Judy Line, CEO of Women’s Housing Limited and Professor Peter Phibbs. The result was a timely, considered and important discussion. Radio National aired this discussion on “What keeps me awake” on 8 October 2016. Audio is available on the ABC homepage. Please click the link below.
