May 2015 - Country Voices

IMG_9148 (1).jpg

May 2015 took us out into the regional and remote areas of Australia to meet members living in all corners of this big country.

Articles include a feature on the family camp run by Down Syndrome Victoria and growing up on a farm in regional South Australia. Contributors to this issue said that while access to services can be a problem, the close-knit community values of small country towns have often been a huge advantage for people living remotely.

A key example of this being the wonderful story of Peter Keath who has purchased his own homeā€¦in his own name thanks to the support of his family and his local community.
