Our Governance

ReSet Governance Committee

The Consortium is led by a Governance Committee made up of key Executive and Management representatives from the four Consortium agencies and has the role of overseeing the implementation of the service model and ensuring effective governance and accountability of the Consortium.

Practice and Evaluation Advisory Group

The role of the Practice and Evaluation Advisory Group is to support, monitor and evaluate ReSet services to ensure they are evidence-based, consistent, and of the highest quality. The committee ensures legislative, regulatory and contractual requirements inform all service design, delivery and evaluation activities. The aim is to support service responses that assist in reducing offending behaviour by addressing the specific needs of individuals, families and communities who come into contact with, and are impacted by, the adult justice system.

Aboriginal Cultural Advisory Group

The Consortium has an Aboriginal Cultural Advisory Group, made up of a mix of Aboriginal community members and Aboriginal Advisors employed by Consortium members. This group is a key strategy in engaging Aboriginal communities and Elders in service design and delivery. The group advise the Consortium on cultural protocols and sensitivities that we need to consider when engaging with Aboriginal communities. The group supports culturally competent service responses that recognise specific needs of Aboriginal people, their families and communities.

Wungening Aboriginal Corporation Board of Directors

The lead agency, Wungening, is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of seven Aboriginal members who are elected by the association members at an Annual General Meeting. Board Directors serve a three-year term and are eligible for re-election. The current Board of Directors consists of a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and three other members. The board includes Elders, men and women, a variety of age groups and links to many different families, clans, groups and regions, reflecting and representing the diversity of the organisation’s members and the Aboriginal communities they serve.

As well as their ability to represent the diversity of community, the Directors are selected on the basis of their skills and experience, their commitment to improving the lives of Aboriginal people, and their links to the Aboriginal community and other strategically relevant networks. Wungening is proud to have the confidence, support and endorsement of the Aboriginal community in this way.
