Vincent spent three months at the Migrant Hostel in Cabramatta before moving to Carringbah. In 1985 he started working as an outreach officer in Bankstown and in 1991 moved to the Cabramatta Community Centre. Through this work, Vincent saw first hand what was happening on the streets as the drugs and violence spiralled out of control. He knew many of the young gang members and struggled to help them despite a lack of training and resources. In 1997 Vincent opened the Cabramatta branch of Open Family, and provided outreach support and services to at-risk and homeless young people. Vincent recently left social work and is now working in the music industry.
