Meaghan conducts participatory research and evaluation, and also teaches in the Master of Social Work (Professional Qualifying) and the Bachelor of Community welfare at Southern Cross University. She has over twenty years’ experience in community work practice across a range of domains, including working with children, young people and families experiencing violence, LGBTQ young people, people experiencing homelessness and poverty, as well as community and sector development in the human services sector. Meaghan collaborates with not-for-profit organisations to build capacity for social justice, belonging, inclusion and equity in communities experiencing multiple intersecting forms of disadvantage, marginalisation and exclusion.

Research

Meaghan is a Research Officer at the Centre for Children and Young People, collaborating on projects that amplify children’s rights and participation in out-of-home care, recovery from climate change disasters, legal and justice system decisions, and the programs and services designed to support their safety and wellbeing. In the Faculty of Health, she researches participatory approaches that enable systemic change, including regional youth mental health service design, community resilience to disasters, and LGBTIQ+ health equity.

Her PhD used co-research to explore the practices associated with giving due weight to the views of children and young people in policy making in Australia, and to co-create a resource to improve participatory policy making practices called Through Our Eyes.
