NRCF Director

Allison Henry

Relevant Experience:
Allison is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Australian Human Rights Institute at UNSW Sydney. With more than two decades of experience in law, politics, public policy and advocacy, Allison served for five years as a Ministerial Advisor in the federal Parliament (2006-2011) and has led national organisations and campaigns across a range of issues. Locally, Allison has been the Executive Officer of the Northern Rivers NSW initiative (2020-21) and Northern Rivers Food (2018-2020).

Why I joined: 
I moved to the Northern Rivers from Sydney in 2014 and have loved getting to know the area and community. I've had some exposure in my work to the value of philanthropy and wanted to offer my experience and expertise to some of the fantastic initiatives offered in this region, while also embedding myself more in the Northern Rivers.

What I do: Director and member of Community Grants and Impact and Development and Engagement Committees.
