High-profile Not for Profit leader Karen Bevan has taken on the position of Chief Executive Officer at Playgroup NSW.

Bevan, who has extensive experience in the children and families area, will take up the position after leading the policy and research teams at the Royal Commission for Institutional Responses into Child Sexual Abuse.

“Karen has spent much of her time working as an advocate and policy influencer ensuring that initiatives for children are based on solid, fact based evidence,” Playgroup NSW President Karen Whiteside said.

“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.  

Playgroup NSW is a Not for Profit organisation that brings mums, dads, grandparents, carers, children and babies together in a relaxed and friendly environment and provides services, information and resources to its members and affiliated Playgroups.
