In November 2017, Central Queensland Indigenous Development (CQID) expanded its service footprint into the Fraser Coast region with the establishment of its Family Wellbeing Services in Bundaberg and Hervey Bay. This involved not just the establishment of the service in the region, but the additional challenge of building relationships and establishing a presence in a new community.

One of the new employees recruited to help us meet these challenges is Lavina Little, a Family Wellbeing Officer in CQID’s Bundaberg office. Prior to starting with CQID, Lavina had previously worked at Phoenix House with children who had experienced sexual and physical abuse.
