BUSHkids Annual Report 2020-2021

Leadership To support our current leaders and grow new leaders from within BUSHkids, we have worked closely with our leadership and management consultants, Trevor-Roberts, to develop a bespoke organisational leadership program. This is multi-level and comprised of a combination of online modules on our learning management system, as well as individual and group coaching and action learning. Valé, Gloria Gloria Ryan joined as a BUSHkids Council member in June 2009 and was elected as Deputy Chair in 2014. She served BUSHkids in this role until April 2021, when we were all saddened by her passing. A very private person who quietly contributed to BUSHkids in a big way, she was legally trained, and enthusiastically contributed to all aspects of our contracting matters, supporting BUSHkids with legal input and comprehensively advising on the Scheme’s Policies and Procedures. Through the changes to the organisation’s branding in 2010–2011 Gloria provided essential advice and assisted greatly with the registration of the BUSHkids trademark. In its unique graphic style, instantly recognised around Queensland, this remains the most publicly visible legacy of Gloria’s many professional contributions voluntarily given to support our organisation over more than a decade of service. She was without a doubt a very dignified and highly respected Council member and friend to all at BUSHkids. Our condolences and thoughts go out to her family and friends. The growth in the organisation has required a focus on leadership at BUSHkids to ensure that we maintain our BUSHkids culture and values as the organisation grows and becomes more complex. We have launched our BUSHkids Leadership Charter which clearly articulates expectations of our leaders at BUSHkids and positions our vision and values as core to inspiring, motivating and empowering our teams. As the organisation has grown, the role of CEO will be supported by the implementation of a small executive team. The first role developed as part of this is that of Director of Clinical Services and Strategy and our Head of Clinical Services, Susan Harrison, has been appointed to this position. Susan will be accountable for the effectiveness and safety of clinical practice, hold strategic responsibility for BUSHkids’ clinical and community services and will lead on service innovation and development.
