As an experienced psychologist, Sue’s role as Co-founder of HHHH is to identify where the greatest impact in the areas of support, health and education can be made. Sue’s skills and experience include 17 years working with vulnerable children and families in a variety of educational, health and welfare settings in Melbourne. In 2009 Sue had the privilege of spending 3 months volunteering overseas where she worked with children and families affected by extreme poverty and life threatening illnesses such as HIV and cancer. It was here that Sue saw first hand the difference a helping hand can make and the desperate need for resources, funds and experienced personnel in underprivileged communities.
Through the creation of HHHH, Sue hopes that others can also play a vital role in improving access to quality education and health for the most vulnerable groups in our society. HHHH was established in memory of Sue’s late husband Nick, who always encouraged others to believe in their dreams and to never give up hope.
