Amar's Story


Published on January 17, 2022

When I arrived, all I had was a small bag and my suitcase. As soon as I walked into WAGEC at Redfern, a worker asked me if I would like something to eat and if I needed any toiletries or fresh undies. I had expected to walk in and begin filling out paperwork but when she asked about these smaller things it just made me slow down and realise that someone cared about my needs as a person not just as a box to tick. It was the woman at the Redfern office that made me feel less scared about what I needed to do next.
