I have spent the past 25 years focusing on developing different ways of providing social service responses that support people who are faced with multiple life challenges. For much of that time I have had the privilege of working with Aboriginal people from different languages groups located across Western Australia. Each day I come to work, I am constantly amazed at the strength and resilience displayed by people accessing our services. Having a lived experience, both as a child in care, and someone who has had extensive engagement with the justice system, has definitely helped me to look at the challenges that people face, in a variety of different ways.
