Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves for Uniting Melba and podcast through the Toorak Times and Tagg [Picture Left to right - Rob Greaves, Kath Holten - Team leader Melba & Hannah Sky
Listen To Older Voices presents the stories, views and opinions of our older citizens. It is predominantly in a life & times format, with interviewees reflecting upon their lives from earliest memories. An underlying principal of the program is to promote the concept of positive ageing, reinforcing the principle that older people have & continue to make a valuable contribution to both their local & wider community.
In this final program on the Life and Times of Hannah Sky, she continues to talk about her experiences working with the Listen To Older Voices program in its early years and the work needed to get the program off the ground including the incredible contributions made by many people. Hannah also talks of some of the powerful examples of people interviewed by herself and her co-worker Jacey Hall.
As we listen to Hannah we understand the amount of work that went into building a solid foundation for this program which has now run for over 1,000 consecutive programs and, how her work has provided a platform by which the program has grown. Listen To Older Voices has continued to provided a voice for older people to promote positive ageing and provide a mechanism by which their stories and contributions to this country can be shared.
