Cal Andrews awarded Churchill Fellowship

This award flows on from the work Cal did with the Department for 5 years on LGBTIQ+ homelessness. Cal’s project will involve visiting a range of specialised LGBTIQ+ homelessness services and programs in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Cal will report on strengths, challenges, and impacts of different models, with recommendations for service provision and policy in Australia. Their work including the national LGBTIQ+ guide for homelessness and housing services is already being translated into several training programs around Australia and the Fellowship will expand on this. They will start their travel as soon as Covid restrictions allow.
