The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust

I am thrilled to announce that I am the recipient of a 2015 Churchill Fellowship to investigate the implications and risks to Australian families considering Cross Border Surrogacy.  From December 2015, for 7 weeks, I will travel to the USA (Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston), Mexico (Villahermosa), Russia (St Petersburg and Moscow), India (New Delhi and Mumbai) and Cambodia (Phnom Penh) to visit clinics and other services who assist Australians to undertake surrogacy arrangements.  I will meet with fertility clinic staff, fertility counsellors, surrogacy lawyers, surrogacy service brokers, and of course surrogates and intending parents, to gain a better understanding of what the experience might be like for anyone considering travelling to these locations to seek surrogacy.  I hope that I will then be able to use this information to provide counselling at home to families considering surrogacy, and assist them to make healthy, safe and informed decisions about their surrogacy treatment options.

On Friday 7th August 2015, I was very proud to stand alongside the other 20 Queensland recipients of the 50th Anniversary 2015 Churchill Fellowships.  Our Fellowships were presented by His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland.  If you would like more information about The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, please visit https://www.churchilltrust.com.au11838580_447336185457171_5120818853269152410_o
