Welcome to our first newsletter for 2021. 

A new year always heralds changes, one of which is the recent resignation of our CEO. While Fairhaven finds its next CEO, Board Director and Treasurer, Rhonda Wheatley will fill the role of interim CEO. Rhonda brings over 30 years of experience working in the private and public sectors including NFP public sector entities as Director Corporate Services, Chief Financial Officer and/or Chief Executive Officer. 

Despite these changes the Leadership Team and Board of Fairhaven have hit the ground running this year. In early February the Board and Leadership Team met to discuss the challenges and opportunities for Fairhaven as we collaboratively developed our Strategic Plan for the next three years.  The discussions were far ranging, and our purpose remains to create opportunities for people living with disability to achieve what they want from life.  

Here at Fairhaven we are all committed to building a bigger, better Fairhaven and welcome feedback from our stakeholders. We want to be an organisation that listens and responds to our service users and community. If you would like to make comment and give us some feedback we would love to hear from you, just email hello@fairhaven.org.au
