Our Board

At MacKillop, we are passionate about empowering vulnerable children, young people and families to continually evolve and improve. This culture is driven by strong governance and a continued focus on child safety.

Our Board sets the organisation’s strategic direction and oversees performance and risk assessment to ensure our long-term viability and effectiveness in accordance with legislative requirements and best practice standards in corporate governance and community expectations.
