It is a privilege to have Caitlin on the #platform1225 panel. Caitlin has had a lived experience of out of home care since the age of 11; living in a variety of foster and residential placements, before moving to semi-independent living and successfully transitioning to independence.
As a result of her unique experiences, Caitlin has developed a true passion for making a difference within the Child Protection system and ensuring young people within that system are empowered to have their voices heard.
Caitlin is studying a Bachelor of Social Work, while working as a Child Safety Support Officer at the Department of Child Safety in the same office that she was supported at. Welcome Caitlin!
