Georgina Clark

Georgina recently completed a Social Work degree at the University of New South Wales. The project she is working on is funded by the NSW Premiers Department Office for Women. It aims to assist service providers who work with women from NESB with disability or carers who have experienced violence. The project focuses on enhancing participants’ skills to address the barriers these women face when trying to access services and implement strategies within the existing service system to fill identified gaps in service provision.

Georgina recognises the importance of working with these women to promote effective change. The project provides an opportunity for the women to work with service providers and use their experience and expertise to identify strategies to develop a service system that is responsive to their needs.
