#Platform1225 welcomes Ashleigh Husband, a social worker for Clarence Street, a youth drug and alcohol service attached to the Mater Hospital, and management committee member for Zig Zag Young Women’s Resource Centre. She is passionate about intersectional feminist practice and the social inequities that underpin young people’s experiences of homelessness, trauma, substance use and gendered violence and presented at the 2016 Australian STOP Domestic Violence Conference, publishing a peer-reviewed paper on the organizational response to domestic violence occurring during homelessness.

Ashleigh will be partnering with Rhianon Vichta, the Research and Evaluation Coordinator for Brisbane Youth Service to present this session. Rhianon’s role involves guiding the organisational commitment to evidence-informed and reflective practice; and to measuring the real outcomes of their work with young people experiencing risks associated with homelessness.

She now specialises in working within the community sector enabling workers to develop and implement pragmatic evaluative approaches that help shape better services for people who are vulnerable and disadvantaged.

This session is not to be missed!
