Glyn Scott

Founder, Love Hope & Gratitude Foundation

2024 SA Senior Australian of the Year Nominee

Glyn Scott survived years of violence and sexual abuse – first as a child and later in her first marriage.  

In 2006, Glyn gave evidence to the Children in State Care Commission of Inquiry about her childhood experience of sexual abuse.  

Her personal experience led to what became legal history in 2012 when a High Court decision ruled that there was no marital exemption to rape. This changed Commonwealth law nationally and set a precedent, paving the way for other women who had a similar experience to come forward.  

In 2015, Glyn founded the Love, Hope & Gratitude Foundation. The organisation provides counselling, advocacy and educational programs to domestic violence survivors, and shelter for adults, children and pets. 

With courage and compassion, Glyn continues to devote her own time, money and skills to support and advocate for other domestic violence and sexual abuse survivors.
