Jason Kara has a strong commitment to the social justice mission of our Catholic health and aged care providers, building on his considerable experience in the public and not-for-profit sectors over the past 20 years.

Jason has worked as a senior executive in the public service focusing on housing and homelessness outcomes; has volunteered as an advisor building capacity in the disability sector in Vanuatu; and has served as a senior advisor in the Office of the NSW Premier. He has also served as a Board Director for the Community Restorative Centre, which aims to break entrenched cycles of disadvantage, offending and imprisonment.

Since joining Catholic Health Australia as the Director Aged Care, he has built strong relationships across the CHA membership while advocating for a quality and sustainable aged care system.

As CEO, he brings his compassionate advocacy to the broader health, aged and community care portfolios, and will continue to support our members nationally to make a real difference to the lives of all in the community, but especially the poor, the vulnerable and the marginalised.
