Independent Assessment Panel

To ensure that we are not influenced by popular trends or good marketing, we have established an Independent Assessment Panel to determine what funding applications we should support.

In addition to the Independent Assessment Panel we have made arrangements with the Burwood Academy of Independent Living in Christchurch New Zealand for their Community Assessment Group to review applications from the consumer perspective. This group, under the guidance of Dr Johnny Bourke, is well advanced in this activity and we are thrilled to be able to work with them to obtain consumer input into funding decisions.
