On behalf of the Board of Management, I am delighted to announce that Fiona Caniglia has been appointed Q Shelter’s new Executive Director.

Fiona will commence in this role from Monday, 2 August.

Fiona is qualified in social work and social planning and has extensive experience across government, community services, and private industries.

She is a passionate advocate for the housing and homelessness sector, and has held leadership roles in industry peak bodies and in grass roots community development.

We are excited to see Fiona bring her ideas, energy, and passion to Q Shelter. I also know she is eager to meet our regional stakeholders and partners very soon into commencing this role.

I’d also like to acknowledge Jane West for taking the reigns as Acting Executive Director during this period of transition. I know that both the Q Shelter Board and team appreciate her work over the past few weeks in continuing our momentum and ensuring a seamless transition in leadership.

I hope you all take the time to welcome Fiona to the role over the coming months.

Yours sincerely,  

Rachel Watson
Q Shelter
