Pathway Through the Maze

What living conditions do you imagine when you hear the words “filthy”, “foul” and “slum”? Rubbish heaps in the third world? Actually, such living conditions are not uncommon in all areas of Sydney.
Catholic Community Services has also been training other community agencies to support early intervention for those living in squalor. Over 680 practitioners have attended training and more training is planned.
Consequently, Catholic Community Services is holding the inaugural:

National Squalor Conference – Pathway through the Maze at the SMC Conference Centre,

66 Goulburn Street, Sydney on November 5-6.

It will be the first conference of its kind held in Australia and will focus on the following themes:

  • The impact of social isolation;
  • Structures within society that increase the likelihood of squalor;
  • The need for sustainable housing;
  • The moral cost of squalor and the need for collaboration.

You do not have to work within social services to attend this conference. A number of people are registering out of interest and concern for friends, family or others in their local communities.
