In May 2020 I stepped down as CEO of Family Life after 25 years, having led the organisation from a small local agency to one of national significance for innovation and impact, with a budget and assets of over $20 million, helping thousands of families, children and young people,  and with many special highlights over the journey.

“Jo Cavanagh has been a powerhouse for the organisation and leaves Family Life with a stable culture, stable strategy and the ability to meet our purpose of transforming lives for stronger communities,” Family Life Board Chair Grant Douglas said.

“She has overseen the growth and transformation of our organisation to ensure we can continue to improve the lives of vulnerable people and contribute to making the world a better place.”
