The Record - PODCAST: Poverty and homelessness, a responsibility of all in the community. By Amanda Murthy"
Director of Centrecare Incorporated for the past 32 years, Adjunct Professor Tony Pietropiccolo AM sat down at The Record studio to discuss the issue of poverty and homelessness which he says, Western Australians have been severely facing for more than 20 years.
Named Member of the Order of Australia in the General Division (AM) (2012), he is also an Adj Prof in the School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Notre Dame’s Fremantle Campus.
His involvement extends with WA Council of Social Services, WA State Homelessness taskforce (22 years), Community Employers WA, and a member of the WA Ministerial Advisory Council on Child Protection, amongst others.
In January 2016, Adj Prof Pietropiccolo established the Valuing Children Initiative (VCI), which he explained, aims to “inspire Australians to value all children, understand that a child’s wellbeing is the shared responsibility of the entire community and ensure children are at the forefront of our considerations”."
