"By the Community, For the Community". Speaker - Adair Bunnett. 

When state government bureaucrats decided to locate a morgue and coroners court on the site of the old girls orphanage in 1973 they hadn’t banked on the local South Melbourne community. By the Community explains the history of the site, and revisits some of the issues that bonded the community together and formed the basis for the foundation of Napier Street Aged Care Services. For the Community illustrates the means by which a not-for-profit organisation has delivered sustained high-quality aged care over two decades.
