The Kempsey Families Inc. governance team comes from the local community and provides external skills and support to the Executive Team.
We believe the key to a functional organisation is in having sound governance with clear and transparent processes.
The Kempsey Families Inc. governance team (the Management Committee) comes from the local community and provides external skills and support to the Executive Team.
The Management Committee contributes expertise and insights from the legal fraternity, NSW Health, education, community connectivity, the Aboriginal community, all with a deep connection and commitment to the Macleay Valley, NSW.
They meet bi-monthly and have ongoing email communication. The Management Committee ensures that:
- there is consistent reporting
- contractual obligations are fulfilled
- there is financial due diligence
- industrial and HR requirements are met
- Workplace Health and Safety is continually monitored
- ongoing maintenance of our workplaces are rigorously reported, reviewed, upgraded, or renewed.
We are also a member of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), who are the national regulator of Australian charities.
Kempsey Families Inc. has formal and informal partnerships at a local, regional, and state level. Partnerships are often formed in response to a common goal, service gap, identified need within community, or with clients themselves.
Mid North Coast Domestic Violence Consortium (MNCDVC)
MNCDVC was formed in 2014.
Kempsey Families is the lead agency with Warrina Domestic Violence Specialist Cooperative (Coffs Harbour), and Liberty Domestic Violence Specialist Services (Port Macquarie).
The partnership specialises in domestic violence, with a strong focus on holding men accountable for their behaviours, and the safety of women and children.
Kempsey Domestic Violence Monitoring Committee
Funded by Women NSW, Kempsey Families Inc. has held the auspice for this Committee since the early 2000s. The goal is to unite government, non-government and community in addressing issues of domestic violence, specifically violence against women and children through a feminist framework.
Community Housing Ltd
In partnership with the MNCDVC, the partnership provides community housing options and products for men in a range of domestic violence programs. This ensures women and children can stay in their own homes while providing an alternative for men
