Jan Newman

Jan Newman joined Tuart Place as a Social Worker in 2015 to offer support for care leavers, which now includes assistance with applications to the National Redress Scheme. Jan had previous experience in hospitals and with migrants, refugees and overseas students, learning much about people’s resilience – a quality found in abundance in care leavers! Jan’s other work included family and local history research, leading to the creation of a “heritage garden” and to a book “Wharf Rats and other Stories: 100 years of growing up in Fremantle”. She is a Dockers tragic!
