Jessica Cocks awarded prestigious Churchill Fellowship

15 December 2016

We are delighted to announce that Jessica Cocks from the Life Without Barriers Practice and Quality team has been awarded a Churchill Fellowship in recognition of her dedication to innovative parent and family inclusion approaches in child welfare.

Presented by the Winston Churchill Trust, the Fellowship is designed to support dedicated and passionate Australians to travel throughout the world in search of new ideas, innovation and excellence. It has a particular focus on innovation that has a positive impact on our communities and society at large.

The award of this prestigious Fellowship is a credit to Jessica and to her excellent work with LWB, Family Inclusion Strategies in the Hunter and beyond. It will provide her with the opportunity to visit sites in the UK, Norway, Canada and the US at the cutting edge of best practice for improving outcomes for vulnerable children and families.

We will all benefit from the insights and knowledge that Jessica will bring home. 

Congratulations Jessica!
