A portrait image of a young indigenous girl happy outdoors

Joe’s parents Mandy and Bill were at breaking point when we first met them two years ago. Poor communication skills meant Joe he would often throw violent tantrums and Mandy and Bill were struggling to cope.

Thanks to supporters like you the family is now leading a much brighter life. Mandy and Bill have a strong support network and Joe is a happy and confident boy who is counting down the days until he begins ‘big school’.
