2019 ELIZABETH TUDOR AWARD WINNER – ANDREA ELLIOT

A tireless advocate for foster carers and a dedication to caring for children and young people has seen Andrea Elliot awarded the Elizabeth Tudor Award for 2019.

A foster carer for 11 years, Andrea has shown unwavering commitment and dedication to the children and young people who have come into her care.

Andrea has been a fine ambassador for foster care, working tirelessly to raise the profile of foster carers as well as supporting other carers.

“Andrea is an amazing ambassador for carers generally and I know she does so much work promoting foster care and also supports the plight of kinship carers,” says Sharon McCrae, OzChild’s Recruitment and Retention Manager.

Andrea has also become an accredited carer in our specialised foster care program, Treatment Foster Care Oregon as well as being actively involved in organising foster family camps.

“I really want for Andrea to celebrate this award and I know she is incredibly deserving of it,” Sharon says.

The Elizabeth Tudor Award is awarded in honour of Elizabeth Tudor, who dedicated her life to community work – especially helping vulnerable women and children, and who was a Life Member of OzChild.

Nominations for the Elizabeth Tudor Award are received from case workers on behalf of OzChild foster and kinship carers and are judged based on the qualities displayed by Elizabeth, in her honour.

We congratulate Andrea on her award and thank her for sharing our vision, giving children and young people the chance to shine.
