The Foundation is governed by a board that is accountable to the Minister for Consumer Affairs, Gaming and Liquor Regulation, the Hon. Marlene Kairouz.
Our board is responsible for providing strategic direction to the Foundation and ensuring we achieve our objectives and carry out our functions. The board comprises at least four (but no more than eight) appointed members and three members of parliament, representing different political parties. The board’s work is supported by three advisory committees.
Our chief executive officer is accountable to the board for day-to-day management of the Foundation and is supported by an executive management group. About 50 staff are spread across the functions of public health and prevention, community awareness, research, Gambler’s Help services, professional development and corporate support.
