Listen: Jarrod Wheatley chats to Sam and Duncan.
Jarrod Wheatley claims that two things get him out of bed in the morning: coffee and a supportive partner. However, his incredible work with foster children may come a close second.
As founder of Professional Individualised Care (PIC), Jarrod Wheatley is working tirelessly to improve care for high needs foster children, by providing them with full-time carers. PIC works to remove children from group home settings and place them in individual homes with full-time carers, which improves their social, emotional and physical wellbeing.
Jarrod is the 2019 recipient of Young Australian of the Year for NSW, and in a chat with Sam and Duncan, Jarrod shared how his work is helping foster kids get a better start in life.
