Karyn Walsh AM is the CEO of Micah Projects in Queensland. She has been leading the organisation for many years and also led many sector projects at a state and national level. Her commitments have included leading Chairing the Australian Alliance to End Homelessness, and being a past President of the Queensland Council of Social Services.
In this interview Karyn talks about how the outreach nature of Micah’s services has been challenged, but been a key strength of how they have been able to support people in 2020. She also talks about how their existing integration of nurses into their outreach teams has been a significant factor in keeping homeless people in Brisbane well during these times.
