Ian Cox - Community advocate (Morphettville)

As the driving force behind Hutt Street Centre, Ian Cox leads a passionate team of people who serve over 50,000 meals each year to nearly 2,000 people experiencing homelessness in Adelaide. Each day, 200 people walk through the doors of Ian’s workplace, wanting showers, laundry and locker facilities, housing and health support, employment and education pathways, legal aid or simply a friendly face. Ian started at Hutt Street Centre in 1992 as a social work student. From a crew of six on the frontline, Ian has grown the organisation into a team of more than 220 staff and active volunteers. Highly-respected throughout the community sector, Ian believes that each person has a story to tell and deserves to be heard and works hard to ensure Hutt Street Centre is a place of hope and opportunity for people to rebuild their lives without judgement. With infectious energy and enthusiasm, Ian encourages everyone he meets to make the world a better place.
