Meet the Team

Fionnuala Murphy

Fionnuala is very passionate about supporting people within the community, having moved from Ireland to Australia with her husband and two young children, some years ago. She knows only too well what that can be like, not having a support network, or family members to rely on and navigating all that needs to be done in setting up home or knowing where to seek information or advice.

Over the past seven years Fionnuala has worked within Child and Family services in various roles, and as a Child and Family practitioner worked to support individuals, and parents, that have children under the age of eighteen. Fionnuala also has extensive experience working across various positions within Youth Justice, Cultural Support Coordinator with Refugee and Asylum-seekers, in the Settlement services and Community Detention programs.
