Claire is a School Engagement Trainer at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children & Families. She is a BAPT registered Play Therapist and Social Worker. Originally from Australia and a Noonuccal-Ngugi woman of the Quandamooka Peoples, she worked for 5yrs with refugee and asylum seeker populations, in a variety of different roles, including therapeutically, as well as working in domestic violence, before moving to London in 2016. While in London, she delivered a pilot youth outreach program on hate crime, domestic violence, and sexual assault before taking up a community development role at Safer London, an organisation that works alongside child exploitation, designing targeted intervention under the lens of contextual safeguarding. Both roles over the last 4yrs included: engagement with all levels of staff in a variety of education settings, delivering CPD sessions, and supporting cultural change in response to trauma, mental health, criminal, and sexual exploitation, hate crime, and discrimination.
