This case study shows how a strong board and good governance are helping Family Life to achieve its mission and build a sustainable future.
The challenge of responding to change and having a strong board
Family Life faces a number of new challenges. These include:
- Expanding services into Casey and Cardinia
- dealing with a wider variety of cultures and backgrounds
- facing uncertainty around future government and community funding
- fostering staff development and job security.
A stable, effective board allows Family Life to respond to challenges like these constructively.
“We go into new areas in a manageable, affordable way. We explore options to partner with existing local community organisations. We are able to apply what we have learnt in other areas, but we know and expect to fine-tune our approach when undertaking a new project.” Len Gill, President
