Welcome to the official blog of Fusion Australia. It’s great to have you with us. Read on for more about what matters to us, our concerns for the communities in which we live and work and about how you can be part of transformed communities where young people thrive.
We love because he first loved us. It’s in this challenge that we can all find our place. By choosing to love the people around us, no matter what their story, how they behave or what they believe, we are stepping up to play our part in the redemption of our world.
In the approach to Homelessness Week this August, we’re challenged to consider how we can bring the jigsaw pieces together, so that others can find A WAY HOME and An End to Homelessness in Australia can become a reality.
“Thriving”, according to the dictionary, means “growing or developing vigorously; flourishing”. I wonder how many of us are really flourishing. It sounds like a wonderful state to be in. As we approach Mother’s Day we’re asking, what does a mother need to thrive?
In the approach to the Day of Action for Neighbours Every Day on Sunday 26 March, we’re asking, what it means to LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR in 2023? We all need a community to be part of; a place where we can belong and know we matter. It’s in this connected, supportive...
Fusion’s committed to Safer Internet Day Tuesday 7 February 2023 and we’re making our online spaces healthy, productive and safe for everyone.
This Homelessness Week we’re exploring what it really takes to know you’ve found a home. By unpacking just two of the stories of young people we’re supporting, we see that it’s not only a roof over your head that matters. By accepting young people as they are and appreciating them in practical ways, we help them know that they belong to a community and are safe to be themselves.
This NAIDOC Week, we’re celebrating the Indigenous people from our past, present and future who, through their actions, show us what it means to “Get up! Stand up! Show up!”
To help us get ready, Bev Rankin from Fusion Central West NSW spent some time talking with Councillor Gerald Power, founder of Indigenous Cultural Adventures and Deputy Mayor of Orange, to hear his story and his hopes for the future of Indigenous people and our nation.
Those of us who’ve lived in the dustbowls of droughted Australia know well the gift of gentle rain, the fresh smell of raindrops hitting the parched earth and the soft gentle greening that follows. This is not the harsh scouring of flash flooding, that rips its way...
What is justice? And, how do we live it out in our every day lives?
After two years of broken connection and isolation, the time is here to pop our bubbles and get into our neighbourhood again. Neighbour Day on Sunday 27 March is your chance to get out and meet your neighbours and be the difference in someone else’s day.
Online safety for young people is an issue as old as the internet. Every parent worries about what their children are exposed to online, what spaces they enter, what information they give away. Cyberbullying, catfishing and predatory behaviour are growing concerns. The media tells us to be worried about SnapChat, TikTok, Discord and any app with group chats. That’s a lot. Events of the last two years have forced young people online more than ever before, so how can we make the Internet a safer place for them?
As you start a new year, what are the values you want to live by in 2022?
Do you long to be hospitable? Generous? Encouraging?
To live a sustainable lifestyle? To include other people? To watch what you say and who you say it to? To listen more deeply to the voices of our First Nations peoples and let what you hear change what you do?
How do we make this year different?
