Penny is a Senior Policy & Research Officer with a focus on gathering information about the lived experience of young people in aged care to inform the work of the Summer Foundation’s policy team. This real time information, as well as Penny’s on-going relationship building in the sector, are important in our work to achieve the policy change that will allow people with complex support needs to live in the community.
Penny is also leading the Summer Foundation’s Support Coordinator Flagship Program, a national effort to build the workforce capability of National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) support coordinators.
With more than 10 years’ experience in the disability sector, Penny has worked predominantly on advocacy and policy reform. She joined the Summer Foundation in 2012.EMAIL
