About us

Our organisation

mecwacare is a leading not-for-profit organisation with a reputation for excellence. We have provided care to the Victorian community since 1959, offering residential aged care, home care packages, respite care, in-home support, community housing, community programs, disability and nursing services. We provide optimal choice for people of all ages, irrespective of financial, religious, cultural or lifestyle background. 

mecwacare cares for more than 16,500 people each week across greater Melbourne and regional Victoria through a highly-integrated service network operated by more than 2,000 employees and 490 volunteers. Our staff are culturally and linguistically diverse, representing 89 nationalities and speaking 98 languages.

Our organisation believes in responding to the changing needs of the community and actively encourages and supports continuous improvement, innovation and safe service delivery.

Our leadership structure

mecwacare has a Board of Directors which is elected from the mecwacare membership in accordance with the Articles of Association, and a Chief Executive who is supported by a Leadership Team.

mecwacare maintains a clear distinction between the functions of the Board of Directors which has a governance role, and the Chief Executive who is responsible for the effective management of the organisation.
