Practice Lead Justice Services

UnitingCare West

Jennifer has been leading UnitingCare West's Justice Services for the past six years. She has extensive experience in designing, developing, implementing and managing services in both metropolitan and regional settings and is a tertiary qualified counsellor. With a family of brothers and sons, Jennifer has a particular interest in our society’s notions of masculinity and its effect on individuals and our community. The focus of her 1:1 clinical work has been around this and she has worked in and managed both voluntary and mandated Family and Domestic Violence programs, facilitated men’s groups and developed and presented community education programmes. She is a strong advocate for the rights of victims of crime and understands that to effect real change, support for that change needs to be provided at the source of the issue, which is offender behaviour. Jennifer is passionate about developing and providing programmes that promote accountability and responsibility as catalysts for change. She believes that engaged programme participants who are supported with respect, transparency and positive regard, whilst also being held accountable for their actions, have the capacity to change and this in turn changes our community.
