Sample Text:
This experience involved feeding homeless and disadvantaged people. I have never done much volunteering before involving interacting with people, so I felt this was a fantastic opportunity to do community service. The van arrived at Baden Powell Park in Southport, and there were already quite a large number of patrons expecting its arrival. The other Rosie’s volunteers were very experienced and were very helpful in giving me directions on and how to distribute the food. Feelings I felt quite nervous at the thought of interacting with homeless and disadvantaged people. Even though I come from a background where money was an issue, I know that I am privileged.

Understanding Social Problems Report, Homelessness and Conflict Theory

This student studied:
Griffith University - 1008CCJ - Understanding Social Problems

The aim of this paper is to understand the nature and extent of homelessness in Australia and apply the sociological conflict theory to this chosen topic and examine why it is a problem. It will focus on defining what a social problem is, what homelessness is and will go on to explore how housing contributes to homelessness which will link back to the theory we are using to apply. It will therefore also through the basics of conflict theory before applying it to the chosen problem and go through relevant terms such as the stratification theory. This paper argues that homelessness is an issue that arises because there is inequality in the system in terms of distribution of power and money and resources.
