Luke Bo’sher is the new CEO of the Summer Foundation.
Announcing Luke’s move to the role, Summer Foundation founder and former CEO Di Winkler said the appointment had been carefully planned.
“Prior to joining the Summer Foundation almost two years ago, Luke worked on disability and housing issues across both the government and non-government sectors,” Di said. “Luke has also been a key contributor to the development of the NDIS in his roles at the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and as a director at the NDIA.”
Di will remain at the Summer Foundation as Chief of Research and Innovation and on the board.
“This will enable me to focus on my two favourite areas of work,” Di said. “In my 12 years as CEO, what has excited me most has been developing and shaping new ideas and innovative projects.
“I will be working closely with Luke and the team to embed innovation in the organisation, so that we are capturing the best ideas from all staff and stakeholders.”
Luke said he was looking forward to leading the Summer Foundation as it continued to take on the challenges of ensuring young people with disability received the support they needed to live ordinary lives in the housing of their choice.
“I am looking forward to the Summer Foundation working even more closely and collaboratively with housing, health and disability providers across the country,” Luke said.
The rollout of the NDIS provides an important and unique opportunity to address the issue of young people in nursing homes.
