Nick supports Progress to Health’s vision of communities without barriers. In addition to his work and governance experience, he is interested in Progress to Health because he has been lucky to receive great support from family and friends over the last 20 years of lived experience. However, he is very conscious that many people in our communities may not have access to the same support, so he is keen to find ways he can support people and to support organisations that have an important frontline role in supporting clients. His partner has a disability that limits some employment opportunities, so he is also conscious of some of the challenges that people face trying to find work that is a great fit with a person’s abilities.
He considers his strengths at a governance level to be around strategic planning, relationship and partnership building, government relations and fundraising.
Previous roles include ministerial advisor to the Minister of Health Hon Dr David Clark, and Associate Ministers of Health Hon Jenny Salesa and Hon Julie Ann Genter.
