Housing and Homelessness
We are firmly embedded in Queensland and Australia's affordable housing and homelessness sectors. Since 2006 we have carried out a large number of policy and research projects for State and National peak organisations, as well as organisational improvement projects for local housing and homelessness agencies.
Whether it's a small group needing to do some focused planning, or a large community workshop, we have a strong track record in leading groups through discussion and decision-making processes. We have a no-nonsense, task focused style of facilitation which gets the job done without extra frills or time-wasting.
We are firmly committed to the notion that service consumers are best placed to understand their own needs. We have facilitated consumer input to a wide range of programs and policies through surveys, one-on-one interviews and focus groups and have advised a range of organisations on consumer participation processes.
Jon has been part of 99 Consulting since 2006, working on a range of research, policy, organisational development and facilitation projects. He has over 30 years experience in community development, social planning and human services and is one of Queensland's most respected housing practitioners. He is a skilled facilitator, writer and researcher with a sharp policy mind and an ability to get to heart of any issue.
Judith Hunter and Helen Wallace
Those who know us well will know that Judith and Helen co-founded 99 Consulting with Jon in 2006. More recently, Judith has accepted a full -time job with YFS in Logan, and Helen is working for Caxton Legal Service in Brisbane. They still do occasional small pieces of work under the 99 Consulting banner but for the most part have left Jon holding the fort.
The 99 Consulting Story
99 Consulting has been operating since 2006. Each of the partners work from their own homes - sometimes we work seperately on small jobs, sometimes we work together to support each other where the task is too big for one person or requires different skills and knowledge. Either way, we are committed to delivering quality projects, listening to what our customers need and delivering it for them. Between us, we have over ninety years experience in human services, community development and social policy, and we bring this experience and confidence to every task we undertake. We have specific knowledge in housing and homelessness and in disability services, but we can also apply the skills and processes we have developed over the years to new fields of work - there is nothing more exciting than getting to know a new organisation and a new subject! We are approachable, honest, down-to earth and love what we do.
