Good news to share! Our program manager, Sharon Gough, was among 106 Aussies selected to travel the world in search of new ideas, excellence and innovation as a 2016 Churchill Fellow.
For six weeks commencing in May 2017, Sharon and her partner Ian will travel to New Zealand and Canada. There Sharon will investigate programs that support young people leaving care to maintain safe, stable housing and develop independent living skills. When she returns, Sharon will be able to use her new found knowledge to strengthen our own LIFT program and share her observations and ideas with the sector.
We are so proud of you Sharon and wish you and Ian happy and inspiring travels!
We would like to acknowledge and thank the Department of Child Protection and Family Support who sponsor this Churchill Fellowship.
