Terrance Lockyer-Cox is a determined and kind-hearted young Aboriginal man from Broome. At the young age of 21,Terrance moved back to Broome after working full-time in Dampier Peninsula small community, Djarindjin.
Terrance was aware of the EEH Program through friends he knew who were staying at Nyirrwa Murrgurlayi. Lauren Oliver, our Case Support Worker (CSW) referred Terrance to the local Transition to Work Program to assist him to search and apply for employment opportunities in Broome. Terrance had enrolled in full-time online study, completing his Diploma in Business and had already obtained his Certificate IV prior to moving in.
Since being accommodated in February 2019, Terrance has continued to achieve the goals he set with our CSW early on in his journey. Terrance is currently completing his log book hours for his driver’s licence through Life Without Barriers, while working on his Diploma studies independently in his free time. The Transition to Work program assisted Terrance in identifying a job opportunity at local Organisation, Nyambu Buru Yawuru in a reception/administrator role.
Not surprisingly, Terrance was successful in his application and has been working full-time with Nyamba Buru Yawuru for the past month. The end goal for Terrance is to complete his Diploma, acquire his driver’s licence and continue working to become an independent young member of our community.
