Sage has more than ten years of experience and passion working
for genuine social inclusion and empowerment for those who
experience homelessness in Sydney's inner city. She has worked in a
range of settings including community development, specialist
homeless services, research and government.
Listening to the stories and experiences of people who become homeless and working alongside them to access services, compelled Sage to become an advocate for trauma informed care with a commitment to creating human service systems that support rather than hinder recovery. This includes facilitating engagement and consultation with people experiencing homelessness in policies and programs that affect them and developing effective partnerships with others to deliver outcomes that meet diverse needs within communities.
