Ruth Faragher

Vice Chair

Ruth was elected to Livable’s Board as a Director in January 2019 and appointed Vice Chair in January 2022. She first came across the work of Livable when it was CRANES and a team of support workers and clients performed Mamma Mia at Jacaranda Thursday. She was hooked! She loves Livable’s commitment to a culture of inclusiveness.

Ruth is passionate about social justice. She has personal experience of living with physical challenges and caring for someone with mental health support needs. Based on her public service career in South Africa and the United Kingdom and volunteer background in community organisations, Ruth brings a diverse range of skillsets to the Board, particularly Governance and Leadership Development. This includes accountability, annual reviews, strategic planning and monitoring and evaluation. Ruth’s qualifications include a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, Bachelor of Law and an MBA in Public Policy.

“Livable promotes social cohesion and connection. It’s exciting to be part of the team that supports staff who make a difference for people in our communities.”
