Aidan was referred to Wyong Youth Refuge when he was 15 and had come from a violent family home with obvious parental neglect. He arrived very frightened, shy and emotionally withdrawn. Aidan’s caseworker helped him to set up a plan to address his individual needs and personal goals. Aidan identified that he needed assistance with his mental health issues, education, living skills and recreational activities.
Aidan focussed on his schooling and also began attending the MMAD (Musicians Making a Difference) Program, achieving great success. He performed three individual pieces in front of a large audience at a Music Camp in Sydney and also performed at the HUB in Erina Fair.
Aidan is now in his own apartment, which he keeps very well maintained. He is continuing with his schooling and remains heavily involved with the MMAD Program. Aidan has improved in all aspects of his life and has matured into an independent young man with so many amazing strengths and ambitions.
