Our Board

They bring to the organisation a strong mix of skills and experience ranging from property and construction to finance, media and marketing. The Board is responsible for setting Youngcare’s strategy and ensuring that we are on track to meet our goals. They make sure that every dollar we receive is put to the best possible use in our mission to fight for freedom of choice for young people with high care needs and their loved ones.

The Board oversees corporate governance, ensuring that we act in a socially responsible way, manage risk and comply with all the relevant rules and regulations. Outside of the boardroom, members play an active role in supporting Youngcare by representing us at fundraising events and functions, meeting MPs and government officials and promoting the Youngcare cause.
