Tune in to hear what is available in our community to make living in your community easier, safer and more worthwhile. Have a pen and paper ready, as there are always contact details to jot down!

Tune in with Greg McHenry, Tuesdays 11am-noon on 94.7 The Pulse.

This award winning program, Roads to Recovery, which is now into its ninth year of broadcasting, intends to increase public awareness of what is available in our community, to make livingin our community easier, safer, and/or more worthwhile.

Edwina, who has produced many programs, and has been very much the ideas person for many topics we have covered, will handle ANY ideas you may have for appropriate discussion, and your involvement as a participant is encouraged.

Please use the "send program feedback" link below, and we will be in contact in a timely fashion.

The audience target is people of all ages. The program attempts to cover as many groups as possible that are able to help people in our community through their issues. We act as a conduit, only, to get information to people who (possibly) want to take that huge first step to recovery, for whatever the reason.

We talk about these issues in an informal, chatty manner, hoping that we de-mystify them, and inform the audience of relevant contacts to get help towards recovery. We have heard of a number of local people taking note of information they have learnt from the program, and taking that important first step to recovery.

The program goes to air on a weekly basis, when guests mainly drive the format, and the program has a strong focus about making it their program.

    National Reconciliation Week Is a campaign held every year in Australia that works to build stronger ties between Indigenous Australia and other communities through media and community events. Today is the first of two *Roads* programs to promote the week, and also to promote Geelongs 8th year of Reconciliation in the Park. This year is quite special as it will be the first time we will be without Tandop David Tournier. Johnstone Park will still be full of activities, music, tucker, and lots of information about our community, on Sunday May the 28th. To have a yarn about this today we have the event organiser Norm Stanley, Edwina, and Nikki & Nakia sat patiently!
