  • Have community sector experience and ideally experience working in or contact with the domestic and family violence sector

What’s in it for me?

Australia is having a moment of recognition of and response to the domestic and family violence crisis our nation is experiencing. Moreton Bay region has one of the highest rates of DFV in Queensland. Being a CADA board member is an opportunity to make a direct positive difference in the lives of people experiencing DFV in Moreton Bay by supporting the direction and governance of CADA.

CADA is going through a change management process to respond to the high demands for our services and we are using innovation and stakeholder engagement to build a strong, sustainable and influential future. Being a CADA board member is a chance to provide strategic oversight of our important work now and of CADA’s future going forward.
