Acting CEO and Director Clinical and Client Services: Tara Hunter
Tara Hunter is based on Gadigal Land (Sydney) and is the Acting CEO and Director of Client and Clinical Services at Full Stop Australia, first established in the 1970s and now one of the country’s most recognised sexual, domestic and family violence response services.
With a Master of Social Work and various workplace training and family dispute resolution certifications, Tara’s approach to leadership is trauma-informed and backed up by over 20 years of experience in the sector, from front-line client work to high-level strategic advisory roles.
Having managed sexual assault support services within the public health network system, led and mentored teams of clinicians through complex caseloads, spoken publicly and in parliament on key law reform matters, including sexual consent, Tara offers an important client-centred approach to the national conversation on ending violence and abuse.
Tara is committed to building stable and reliable trauma-specialist systems that support clients and front-line workers, while also addressing the underlying systemic and social causes of gender-based violence.
