Brotherhood of St Laurence

Quote of the day

As Father Tucker had always emphasised, the Brotherhood's job was 'to build fences at the top of the cliff rather than provide ambulance services at the bottom'. How could families be helped to gain more control over their lives? It was the origin of the notion of empowerment in Australia. ~ Always Say Yes p. 100
