A massive shout out to Uncle Gary who is a 2022 Finalist to be a Westfield Local Hero!
Uncle Gary Cobbo is a respected Aboriginal Elder and has dedicated 30 years to mentoring and supporting hundreds of local young people. In his role at Kurbingui Youth and Family Development, he is always ready to offer people a feed and a safe place to have a yarn he hopes will lead to life-changing interventions.
Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities. The finalist with the most community votes will become the Westfield Chermside Local Hero for 2022, receiving a $20,000 grant for the organisation they represent. If Uncle Gary is successful, Kurbingui Youth and Family Development will use its funds to run programs that provide assistance and linkages to employment and training for young people.
