State Trustees Boost To Protect Vulnerable Victorians

The Victorian Government is giving the State Trustees a boost to help support vulnerable Victorians.

States Trustees helps clients with everyday finances when they don’t have the capacity to do so themselves due to disability, illness or injury.

They also provide legal support and advice to ensure clients get their rightful entitlements, such as through the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The Government will invest $4.2 million over two years to improve service delivery and operations at State Trustees, which has just appointed three new board members.

Angela Emslie, Tony Clark and Vivienne Nguyen will join the two existing board members who have been reappointed for a further three-year term.

The new additions to the State Trustees board represent a diverse range of skills and experience.

Current Suicide Prevention Australia chair Angela Emslie has broad expertise in governance and strategy and holds director positions at Frontier Advisors and LIME Management Group.

Tony Clark has a strong track record of advocacy on disability, education, social enterprise and employment issues.

Current chairperson of the Victorian Multicultural Commission Vivienne Nguyen is an established business executive and community leader, having previously held roles as the Victorian Vietnamese Community president and non-executive director at City West Water.
