“I’m delighted to have this opportunity to be part of an exciting future for Uniting Vic.Tas,” said Munro. “Its proud history of standing up for the vulnerable and marginalised is coupled with a bold and exciting vision for the future of community services. This is an organisation that can really make a difference.”
