Barry talks about how living conditions impact on culture and on training (1:22)

So you’ve got to keep your requirements short.  You’ve also got to realise that this community is acculturated in their experiences as much as it is in their culture in the fact that if you’ve got so many people living in a house, that makes it a certain way that people operate.  It means that they’re up late, it means that they’re usually – they might be to bed late and up early because there’s just so many people in a house and someone will wake up and wake everyone up.  Because of that sort of over-crowding, they’re tired, they’re hungry and they’re thirsty.  So you’ve got to meet a lot of needs in that process that I don’t think people take into account. 

People don’t take into account the simple things like if you put a packet of biscuits out, that because it’s food and it’s out, it will all be eaten whereas in other places, you might put a packet of biscuits out and you might end up still taking away half a packet of biscuits because not everyone wanted it, whereas you put them out here and because it is food, the concept here I believe is that where there’s food, you eat it.  So you don’t leave half a packet of biscuits, you eat all the biscuits.   If you, you know if there’s drinks and if cordial in the thing, they just keep drinking it until it’s gone, that’s when they know there’s no more.
