YSAS Board Chair Announcement

Back to Media

The Board of Directors at Youth Support + Advocacy Service (YSAS) is delighted to announce the appointment of Simon Overland to Chair of the YSAS Board.   Simon was a highly valued YSAS Board member between 2007 and 2012, during which time he was a thoughtful contributor to the organisation’s strategy and policy development.

Simon has had senior roles with Victoria Police, Federal Police and currently he is Secretary of the Department of Justice in Tasmania.  He has a deep and continuing interest in the welfare of young people, and has always held a progressive and compassionate view of the wider social drivers underpinning  young people seeking help and treatment and to those engaged in the justice system.

As an agency with a national role in promoting high quality services to disadvantaged youth, Simon understands the challenges YSAS faces  and is passionate about the services that need to be available for young people to survive and then hopefully  to thrive.

Simon will bring a breadth of skills to the YSAS Board, which will be instrumental to his ability to continue to provide the kind of sound governance that supports the staff in their various roles with young people.

YSAS will be well served by having a Chair of his capacity, knowledge and values.
