Presenters: We are honoured to have WA AASW two newest Life Members speaking at the Breakfast, Dr Brenda Clare and Terry Simpson.
Dr Brenda Clare - Brenda has championed for an approach to “Social Working” that views the profession as an agent of change whilst ensuring that the actions that Social Workers are of the highest skill. Her work in the Social Work profession has been to ensure that, where it is needed, Social Work is robust and equipped to support individuals and families. Brenda’s work at the AASW and in the profession has raised standards. These standards ensure that structures that delivery quality are cognisant to the responsibility that comes navigating risk. Brenda’s work across the Child Protection, Vulnerable Adults and University Sector has contributed greatly to Social Work in Australia. Brenda has tirelessly taken her research and experience to be an integral part of the AASW. In championing the adherence to Social Work standards and growth over the last 10 years, Brenda has used her effort and knowledge to ensure that Social Work Education has a stamp of quality and that our Association pivots to be that bridge to better Social Work.
Terry Simpson - Terry has been a WA Branch social policy stalwart and throughout his Social Work career he has been a systemic advocate and operator across community services, justice and disability. Terry’s unique arc has seen a career across Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia. Terry’s work across community services, justice and disability has shaped how Social Work is viewed in the state. His work has involved supporting individuals in complex and vulnerable situations by ensuring that the best outcomes are provided. His unique ability to understand the moving parts of policy and service delivery has provided a narrative, especially for us at the AASW, the policy mechanisms required to make change.
