My name is Craig Brown. My families are from the Gumbainggir (Urunga), Dainggatti (Kempsey) and Bundjalung (Coraki) nations. I have lived and worked in Western Sydney for most of my life. I have an extensive knowledge of traditions and culture by travelling around Australia. I have lived in rural and remote communities and have a thorough understanding of lifestyles, experiences and issues that impact Aboriginal people. My knowledge has been extended through study and work.

I have worked in various fields of social welfare in departments like health, education, employment and housing.

I am now a qualified member of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) and have worked in mental health for the past six years. My approach when working with my people is solution focused and strength based. These approaches are empowering and develop resilience. I am passionate and professional when working with our communities.
