My name is Erica, I am 30 years old and am the coordinator of Hands of Grace Africa, currently living in Australia although originally from England (UK). I have been working as a social worker for six years now within different international settings and across a diverse range of client groups.

I moved over to Australia in 2011 to work with the indigenous children and families over here going through the child protection system. My support is tailored around supporting the children to be reunified back with the parents or to prevent family breakdown.

I really enjoy working with different cultures and learning from the people and environment that I immerse myself in.  I had the privilege to work at E-Shadai in 2009. I worked in the foster home spending time with the young people, as well as within the community with the ‘women empowerment’ program offering support and guidance and learning about the women’s lives and interests.

The love and support I received throughout my time there was a blessing and the experience I gained was invaluable. I learned so much from the faith and wisdom of the children and community and the strength they showed to overcome any hard ship they were facing. My learning was brought forward in to both my personal and professional life.

I hope to offer my support and be involved in the great work ‘Hands of Grace Africa” are doing as much as I am able to. The work they are currently doing and their hopes for the future will bring great blessings to many people’s lives.
