David, known to many as Davo, has spent most of his life on the land, following the seasons around Victoria picking fruit and maintaining farm machinery. This  nomadic lifestyle came to an abrupt end after a shoulder injury forced Davo out of work.

“For the first time in my life, I felt safe.”

Born in Ballarat but a Mildura local since he was a young boy, Davo has been inspired by his HHS support worker to join the TRG for his complex so he can give back to his community.

“It’s a small thing for me to do really. I have a home to be proud of thanks to Haven.”
