Our governance is regulated by ASIC through our legal status as a public company limited by guarantee under Commonwealth corporations law. We also have accountability relationships with our funders and other regulators.
We are proud of our reputation and the high standing of our organisation in its reporting relationship with regulatory bodies and funders.
We are governed by a skilled and diverse Board of voluntary directors with backgrounds in finance, business, academia, health, legal and community sectors and as consumers and carers. Our Board’s work sits within the framework of its own governance policies which set out our organisation’s vision and strategy; the Board’s processes and, the Board/CEO linkage and delegation policies.
The key to the governance ethos of RFQ is an unwavering commitment to our mission and values, with people in recovery at the centre.
The Board’s ‘Vision and Strategy 2012-2016’ provides the framework for our operations to deliver on this commitment. Four strategic priorities provide our direction: achieve continued service excellence; strengthen our strategic engagement; ensure future sustainability and, support change in the community.
Expressed as ‘Ends’ statements, these priorities articulate the outcomes we want to achieve: recovery supported; connections built; growth planned and, awareness raised.
