        Jigsaw Queensland

        Trevor Jordan Phd, CEO of Jigsaw Queensland, is an internationally recognised expert on ethics and adoption and served as President of the Management Committee for more than two decades. He was a peer reviewer and regular contributor to the Australian Journal of Adoption. On behalf of Jigsaw, he has provided written and oral submissions to the Senate Inquiry into past forced adoption, responses to the AFIS study in past service responses to adoption, and the AIFS scoping study into future post-adoption service provision, submissions to the review of the Births, Deaths, and Marriages legislation in Queensland, and the recent review of the Commonwealth Electoral Act, particularly with respect to accessing information on behalf of individuals searching for their family of origin, and a written submission to the Prime Minister's Interdepartmental Committee on Intercountry Adoption.

         

        Trevor has also regularly presented keynotes and workshops at the Australian Adoption Conferences and the National Service Provider's annual meetings. He was a community member of the National Intercountry Adoption Advisory Group, attending meetings of the Australian Central Authorities Harmonisation Working Group and Post-Adoption Services Working Group.

         

        As an adoptee, Trevor knows from experience the long-term effects of adoption. He is now semi-retired from his role as an academic and consultant in professional and public ethics.
