Jim Longley, Chief Executive of Ageing, Disability and Home Care (NSW)
Department of Family and Community Services, NSW Government, addressed a private boardroom lunch for 20 senior business executives in an interactive discussion around the disability needs of our State and the significant support and services that are being implemented.
In July 2012 Jim Longley took on the role of Chief Executive, Ageing, Disability and Home Care (NSW). With this came the huge responsibility of providing services and support to more than one million older people, people with a disability, and their families and carers.
In recent times The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has received significant press. NDIS is a generational reform which will deliver a new system of disability support. It will be focused on the needs and choices of people with disability through a partnership between the NSW and Commonwealth governments. Full implementation of the scheme across NSW will benefit around 140,000 people. The transition to the NDIS will be built on the NSW Government’s disability reform agenda, Stronger Together 2.
Jim was a Member of the NSW Parliament for 10 years from 1986 to 1996 serving as the Member for Pittwater and as a Cabinet Minister. Jim has a background in economics and finance, and was Executive Vice President, Government Finance with the Commonwealth Bank for 10 years. He has also worked as CEO and Managing Director of Anglican Retirement Villages for four years from 1996 to 2000.
