Chris Gardiner is CEO of Police & Community Youth Clubs (PCYC) NSW, one of the largest youth organizations in Australia. PCYC has a unique relationship with the NSW Police Force, supporting the Youth Command with case management of young offenders and youth ‘hotpots’. Chris’s early years as a kid were in what is still a youth ‘hotspot’ – the Housing Department units around Lexington Place at Maroubra Beach. Chris has previously had leadership roles in hospital and aged care with Catholic Healthcare, and as Director of the Anglican Archbishop of Sydney’s Overseas Aid Fund. He has postgraduate qualifications in ethics and in international relations. The views Chris expresses in his contributions are his own.
