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.

“Now I don’t think I am below anybody. I feel different from what I used to believe. I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy.”
