Moving in is a project about home ownership. The participants I am working with are my students at Career Employment Australia located in Logan Central. CEA offers free study to people who are recieving Centrelink benefits and are looking to improve their language, literacy and numeracy skills to help them find work.

When I suggested to my class that we get involved in the The Homesickness Project they were all keen to try something new. So every Tuesday morning we now discuss the experiences they have had renting, dealing with landlords and real estate agents.
