Ian Seal (B.Ed (Sec); M.Soc.Sci) has worked in the fields of capacity building, community development and health promotion for vulnerable children and young people, for more than two decades. He has extensive experience working in complex and disadvantaged communities, such as Australian Aboriginal communities, urban injecting drug users (Australia and the Philippines), island communities in remote areas of Indonesia, LGBTQI+ groups, and with orphans and street children in Uganda, Indonesia and the Philippines. His focus is on strengthening the abilities of children and young people in disadvantaged communities to meet their own needs and maximise their health and wellbeing, and on building the resources and skills of families and communities for children and young people’s health.
