“It can be a challenging job.”

“My day-to-day work involves dealing with complex issues surrounding social housing and resolving them,” says Prayas, Project Officer, Contracting Unit for the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (Aboriginal Housing Office NSW). 

“What I enjoy most is the fact that while the work we undertake is very challenging, it’s facilitating better outcomes for Aboriginal communities and the public in general.” 

Aboriginal Housing Office NSW is an important provider of social housing to Aboriginal communities in NSW, providing a range of housing solutions to meet the needs of today’s community. It’s this contribution he’s able to help make to the NSW Aboriginal community that motivates Prayas in his work. 

“In the role that I’m in, the outcome I achieve on a day-to-day basis has a very positive impact not only on me, but also on the needs of the NSW public,” he explains.  

Outside of work, Prayas is a big sports fan. 

“I relish playing and watching sports. Otherwise, I keep up with current affairs and of course spend time with family and friends,” he says.
