CFC board are pleased to welcome Amanda Porter to the role of CEO. Amanda has a background in community services including Mental Health and Alternative Care, and commenced in the role on Tuesday Aug 16. Part of her role will be to improve communication with our members (which we warmly welcome!). Amanda will be introducing herself to you all soon, and looks forward to meeting many of our metro members at Recharge 2016 on September 29.

We would also like to thank everyone who posted support and offered their help in response to our statement regarding the Royal Commission report. Minister Close has invited CFC to a meeting to specifically address our concerns. We will continue to fight for carer’s rights and accountability across the child protection sector so that more children may experience “the life they deserve”.
