From the ground up

When Tony Sharp retired, he hoped to dedicate his time to finding ways to help young people gain work experience. He joined YFS, a not-for-profit organisation that delivers various services to Logan and its surrounds – and soon found himself in a full time job once again, repurposing used electronics and helping disadvantaged members of his community gain vital skills and experience.

In this special interactive piece, ‘From the ground up’ – a Griffith University collaboration between Griffith Review, the Policy Innovation Hub and Liveworm South Bank – Griffith student Taylor Toovey visits Substation 33, the warehouse in Kingston where Tony’s social enterprise has taken shape. Toovey tells a story of community, the people that make it and the many ways they can help each other out of disadvantage.
