Lloyd Clarke

Small Steps 4 Hannah Foundation
Selfless. Inspirational. Survivor

Lloyd Clarke established the Small Steps 4 Hannah Foundation after his beloved daughter Hannah and her children became tragic victims of domestic violence. Lloyd and his wife, Suzanne, now give talks in Hannah’s memory about the red flags for coercive control. They did not know about coercive control and want to make others aware.

We congratulate our finalists and recognise the important contribution they make to the local community.

Allan Prestwood from Southern Moreton Bay Islands Coastcare Inc.
Allan Prestwood has helped make his local community more beautiful since co-founding Southern Moreton Bay Islands Coastcare. His constant litter patrols have encouraged others to follow his lead, with rubbish reducing despite a growing population.

Kimberley Robertson from Redlands Special Olympics
Kimberley Robertson was 16 when she started volunteering at Redlands Special Olympics. Over the past 10 years, she has coached over 100 athletes with an intellectual disability to achieve their sporting dreams at local and national competitions.

Sabeel Burgess from Open Haven Ltd
Sabeel Burgess felt compelled to act when she discovered four women who she knew were experiencing domestic violence. In 2017 she set up Open Haven to provide the practical help survivors need to get back on their feet after leaving a shelter.
