DONATE TODAY: SUPPORT CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH A DISABILITY IN QUEENSLAND

Our Team

 

People are what make Montrose such an exciting and passionate organisation. Over many years we’ve always had outstanding leadership and benefited from the insights of our patron, independent voluntary board, executive leadership and an amazing team of therapists and support staff.

At Montrose the people and families we assist can be assured we are all working together to achieve the same goals. Our friendly and experienced teams provide a ‘one-stop shop’ of services to people with physical disabilities, neuromuscular conditions, developmental delay and autism.

Montrose Advisory Committee

The Montrose Advisory Committee (MAC) is comprised of individuals with a current or past association with Montrose. All members have lived experience — either living with disability or caring for their children who live with disability. The MAC members are passionate about advocacy, making things better for people with disability and providing advice around all things sector and NDIS related.

The MAC meet quarterly and provide the following contributions in a range of areas:

  • Identify modifications and/or improvements to better align policies and processes with the expectations of people living with disability, or carers of those with a disability.
  • Provide feedback to Montrose regarding the improvement and design of services and projects that relate to clients.
  • Help inform the advocacy work that our CEO Kerrie Mahon performs as part of various committees and Ability First Australia. This means that the MAC has an influencing voice when major changes are happening within the NDIA and disability sector.
