In the two years that Craig has been a client of The Disability Trust in the Campbelltown region, he has accomplished quite a lot, but the highlight of his achievements has to be the fulfillment of his dream to have a regular spot on a radio station.

Craig has over 20 years' experience working in radio, and with support from The Disability Trust staff he approached local radio station 100.3 FM (The Sounds of Macarthur) about volunteering and getting involved again.

Craig was delighted when, after completing eight weeks of training at the station, he was offered a regular slot to host his own programme.

Craig now has a show which runs every Friday from 2pm to 4pm, when listeners can call up and request a song. He plays a wide range of music and shares knowledge on bands as well as giving 'shout outs' to callers.

The Disability Trust staff support Craig at the radio station, and Craig says he gets a huge a sense of accomplishment.

"If I'm ever down it gives me a high and I am doing something important and being part of the community and also giving back," he said.

Craig appreciates the support he has received and he also loves that the other residents living in South West Sydney and Campbelltown look forward to his weekly program when they can ring up and give shout outs and requests.

"Without me coming to live in The Disability Trust home I don't think this dream would have been possible for me. I am so happy and grateful with the support I have received from The Disability Trust," Craig said.

It just shows even if you have a disability you can still pursue your dreams.

Craig asks if anyone would like a request he is on every Friday from 2pm to 4pm and to call 100.3 FM on 4625 2768.
