Lucy Fraser (she/her)

Senior Social Innovator: Co-design with Communities

Working on Kaurna Land

Lucy’s background in industrial design means she brings a rigorous process to addressing complex social challenges. At TACSI, she works across every stage of our projects to co-plan and co-design solutions, services, principles and policies, and helps implement them to get the best possible outcome.

Lucy supports people’s experience and wisdom and helps turn their ideas of a better world into something tangible. She creates conditions for leadership of people who are often silenced by the status quo, and will always learn so much more from them. 

Lucy is passionate about removing obstacles to self-determination of First Nations Peoples and migrant, refugee and other diverse cultural communities. As a white woman, Lucy aims to share power and reduce barriers in the design process and beyond. 

She recently supported a co-design group to develop the foundations for the first lived experience led, non-coercive residential place for mental wellbeing and healing in Victoria. Lucy has had the opportunity to partner with South Sudanese Australian young people in Melbourne, creating conditions for them to develop and deliver activities that help their peers thrive. She is also working hard at embedding reconciliation into the practice of TACSI and our partners.

When she’s not at work, you’ll find Lucy embarking on spontaneous hikes around the Adelaide Hills and coast – anywhere where there’s a water view and lots of bird life.

Lucy's Message Stick

*A message stick is a public form of graphic communication first used by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Peoples. The objects were carried by messengers over long distances and were used to support a verbal message.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and Owners of the lands in which we work and live on across Australia. We pay our respects to Elders of the past, present and emerging. We are committed to collaboration that furthers self-determination and creates a better future for all.

At TACSI, diversity and inclusion is more than a statement; equality and accessibility are guiding principles embedded in everything we do. We strongly believe that it’s the collective sum of all our communities differences, life experiences, and knowledge that enables both ourselves and our partners to come together to tackle complex social issues. That’s why we’re committed to having a diverse team made up of people with diverse skills from all backgrounds, including First Nations peoples, LGBTIQ+, mature-age people, and people with visible and non-visible disabilities, regardless of sex, sexuality or gender identity.
