“My name’s Carol and I’m born and bred in Katoomba. ‘

“Mum’s got a bridge named after her up across the highway, it’s called the Aunty Joan Cooper OAM bridge and Dad’s got a piece of land going down the highway and that’s Digger Cooper Reserve.”

“I’m an Elder and I do what Mum used to do, go out talk to people and do Welcome’s but the talking to people was the most important part because we all got to know each other, like we’re all coming together and knowing about each other.

“There’s so many people who have absolutely nothing, social housing helps them out, they get them into a place, they collect food and blankets and clothing and that for people who have got nothing so to me housing is just amazing.”

“I’ve been in this little unit here, this beautiful place, for two years and I absolutely love it. I love this place, I’m home.”
