Arafmi Carer Advisory Committee

Arafmi is establishing a Carer Advisory Committee to ensure the Arafmi Board can continue to strengthen their connection with carers and their understanding of carers needs.

The Carer Committee will meet four times a year with board representatives, the CEO and Service Delivery Manager – Carer Supports. These meetings will ensure there is direct contact between the board and carers. The committee will identify present and emerging needs of carers, discuss and share recommendations and ensure carer’s needs remain central in Arafmi planning, decision making and advocacy.

Carer Committee members will be reimbursed for their time and travel to acknowledge their contributions and commitment. Members will also have the option to join via Zoom.

If you are passionate about carer’s needs and seeking an opportunity to connect directly with the board and make real differences in outcomes for carers at Arafmi and in the broader community we would love to hear from you.

Please read the information sheet to find out more about this opportunity.

If you are interested in applying to become a member you are asked to complete the application form below by Tuesday, 6 April and then we will be in touch with you.

If you have any questions please contact Alex Tyson (Service Delivery Manager – Carer Supports) at alextyson@arafmi.com.au or on 3254 1881.
