Bob - Queensland

“My first memories as a child was my mum and dad operating a young drop-in space in the city during the 50s and 60s …

"I just grew up with the idea of working with young people.” Bob Cunningham has spent half his life helping young people who don’t have a place to call home; these days he's a youth worker at Red Cross’ Brisbane night café for young people experiencing homelessness.

"The whole atmosphere at the Night Café is not one of desperation but rather full of hugs and greetings as they become closer and closer - like a family.” It’s a place young people can go for more than just a free meal or a hot shower.
