Key Employment Client Wendy Craig has published a book on her life. The “In the World Alone” story is one of survival, sick as a child and affected by polio, she grew up in Children’s homes in Sydney thinking she was an only child, and not even aware that she was Aboriginal.
But that changed when, as a teenager, she found her family and her heritage. This is her story as she discovered not only her first nation family on the Mid North Coast of NSW, but also her own talent as an Aboriginal artist. Today, she is an elder of the Gumbaynggirr Community.
Her story is one of struggle and institutional survival, but more than that, of family reunited, talents discovered and dreams come true.
To purchase Wendy’s book, pop into Key Employment Coffs Harbour.

“I like KAPOW because I can do the work well and the trainers are accepting. It is better than school and is helping get me a job.”
“I found the course very interesting and would recommend it to anyone who loves animals, like me 🙂 But I loved that it wasn’t all in class and we went on excursions aswell. It was awesome, I wished it went longer.”
“I like KAPOW cause the trainers are bloody great and helpful. Looking forward to getting a job.”
“I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy, and the people at Key Training make me feel like a valued member of the community.”
