Ageing, Disability & Home Care

Top appointment to promote inclusion for people with disability, seniors and carers

11 March 2013



Minister for Ageing and Disability Services, Andrew Constance, today announced the appointment of Michael Woodhouse to the role of Executive Director, Carers, Ageing and Disability Inclusion.

“One of Michael’s many achievements as Executive Director of the Office for Ageing has been the launch of the NSW Ageing Strategy in July last year,” Mr Constance said.

“This new expanded role will see him lead the implementation of the strategy and also focus on greater inclusion for people with disability and carers.”

Mr Woodhouse has 15 years experience in the health and human services sectors, working with State and Commonwealth Governments and the non-government sector.

He has a law degree and has worked in policy and management positions in NSW and the Northern Territory.

“I am passionate about making a difference to people who are too often sidelined in our society because too little is understood about their needs and the supports which will help them live the life they want,” Mr Woodhouse said.

“I’m looking forward to working towards better outcomes for carers, people with disability and seniors who contribute so much to the community.”
