Response For Guest Speakers

What did I learn from Linda and Toni?
There are only three centres for men and children in NSW. That America has the most homeless people. Some homeless people prefer to live on the streets. The government is making people homeless by demolishing houses and moving the people in them. The houses that are given to homeless people by the government, they are allowed to live in that house for up to twelve weeks. When they are living in this house they have to be searching for a house to live in. St. Vincent-De Paul provide education, food and accommodation. The homeless people get free food for two nights a week.
What can I do to help them in their work?
Some ways are by donating money, also by fund-raising. Another big way of supporting them is to donate food , clothes and furniture. Also by encouraging others to support and help them find a home and to get them of the street. By giving them a hamper at Christmas times.


Inquiry we are learning about marginalised people and homeless people.On Friday a person from Minnie Vinnies came and talked to us about the homeless people and what they do to help people who live on the streets and they don’t have a home.

Homeless People

                                        Homeless people


Homeless people could be living on the street because of low income, natural disasters, and threat and violence. Also they might be a refugee or an asylum seeker. Commonly homeless people are middle aged people and alcoholic people. It is also when they are rejected from the society or community. The homeless people live on the street without a house. Also homeless people can be rejected from their family or relatives. Some homeless people don’t stand out for them selves but some do.


The most useful website that I used is



Asylum Seeker

Asylum seeker are people that come from other countries to our country because their country might be at war or their government told them to leave the country and go to another country. Asylum seekers are very poor and they have to come on fishing boats and hide from immigration people. When the asylum people come to Australia they have to go through process of testing them ,after the test has been done they decide to stay in Australia or go back to their country .The detention centre is a fully fenced placed with a lot of refugees that comes from other countries because their country might be danger. The people that come from other country might be at threat or they might have been told that they might be killed.

The government can give them comfort and give them jobs. And give them houses rather than putting them in the detention centre or the prison. Also the government can support them and make them involved in Australia’s works. Also they can let one family out each year and let them be free.
