Name: Kiara Digby
YFCC Service Area: Crisis Accommodation Support Services Worker – Casual
What do you like about your role? What I enjoy about this role is the ability to use my lived experience to assist young people with the disadvantages and challenges they face in the different aspects of their life. Whether it be employment, mental health, substance use, school, etc., many social determinants impact an individual’s wellbeing, and I am happy that my role addresses these issues.
A bit about you: I am a passionate advocate for the well-being of young people, particularly those facing psychosocial challenges. I am very involved in my community and strive to give back. I am a peer worker at YFCC drug and alcohol service, an aged care worker and I sit as a board member on a few community committees.
