Patricia Sparrow joins Wintringham Board

by Wintringham Communications

Highly respected aged care industry Executive and Advocate Patricia Sparrow, has joined the Board of Australia’s largest provider of aged care services to people vulnerable to or experiencing homelessness. 

Patricia Sparrow is a proven leader and innovator in the human services sector. Ms Sparrow is the former CEO of Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA), and current CEO of Vision 2020 Australia.

“We’re thrilled to have secured a Board Member of Patricia’s calibre and experience in aged care,” says Wintringham Board President Gerard Mansour.

“Our CEO/Founder Bryan Lipmann and myself have worked closely with Patricia on various aged care issues over the years, so this very much feels like a natural fit for our organisation.

“We’re so pleased Patricia has chosen Wintringham and is committed to help us on our mission to give older people experiencing homelessness equal access to aged care, housing and support services, with the dignity and rights they deserve, and the options they want, just like every other older Australian.”

Newly appointed Wintringham Board Member Patricia Sparrow says, “I have always admired the accomplishments and dedication of Wintringham from a distance; I’m just so excited that I’m now in a position to join this passionate organisation and contribute to this worthy cause.”

“I have huge respect for the work every Wintringham team member does, and applaud the phenomenal growth of Wintringham’s services in Victoria, and now in Tasmania. This growth is testament to the vision and dedication of the team. I’m looking forward to playing my part.”

Board Member Jeffrey Gole, former President of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria, leaves the Wintringham Board after 20 years of service. Mr Gole has seen the organisation grow from 100 staff to almost 900 this year.

“Our sincere thanks and best wishes go to Jeffrey for his service to vulnerable impoverished people, your legacy at Wintringham will continue for many years to come,” says Mr Mansour.
