It was tough when we first arrived in Sydney. I struggled to fit in and make friends.
Who runs the team?
We had a couple of meetings with our case worker but Dad didn't really trust her at first.
She set me up with an account on Youth Linkz. I can message my Case Worker directly, she posts our meetings and suggested activities I could do. There's also lots of useful info about life in Australia.
Dad has access too. My caseworker recommended a local football team I could join. At first Dad was nervous, but we all chatted online about his concerns.
Dad, it will be fine.
The local PCYC - they're great
Eventually he felt comfortable and let me join. My caseworker added all the details to my Youth Links account. Now I play every Thursday.
Some of the guys from soccer are at school, so I've been meeting more people through them. So school's getting a bit easier.
