“This has ensured that children and families benefit.  This commitment demonstrates a very strong alignment to our own goals and vision for children within the community, Karen is a perfect fit for Playgroup NSW.

“This is an exciting period for the organisation and we welcome her to the team.”

Bevan has also worked with UnitingCare Children, Young People and Families where she held the senior executive position of Director, Social Justice, responsible for the organisation’s policy, advocacy and research agendas, government relations and organisational strategy.

Other roles have included work in the areas of policy, research, public relations and fundraising.

She also has significant experience managing both state and federal government relationships at a senior level as an advocate for the wellbeing of children.
