CEO & Organisation Structure

Katie Hooper - Chief Executive Officer





I have worked in child welfare for over twenty years after completing a Bachelor of Science (BSc) and Bachelor of Social Work (BSW).   I was a foster carer with Berry Street Victoria for over 10 years and Scott and I are now carers with Wesley in the outer East of Melbourne. We offer emergency and respite care. I was lucky enough to give respite care to a sibling group of two boys for over 10 years.  The eldest foster child has just completed training at the Police academy and the younger boy is a doing a cabinetry apprenticeship.  I am very proud of both of them.  


Prior to my role as Chief Executive Officer at FCAV,  I worked for Child Protection and not-for-profit organisations MacKillop Family Services (home-based & residential care) and Whitelion (supporting young people in or at risk of involvement with the Youth Justice System and young people leaving care).
