The Infants’ Home Board Director and Treasurer, Lindsay Smartt, has resigned and will be stepping down from the Board from 22 February 2024.

President Mary Verschuer thanks Lindsay for his deep and long-standing commitment to The Infants’ Home and our mission to ‘give each child every opportunity—today and tomorrow. “Lindsay’s ethical and prudent guidance of our financial decision-making has been pivotal to ensuring that, despite significant challenges due to the pandemic and upheavals across the child and family services sector, we remain on a sound path for securing a sustainable future,” she says. “I wish Lindsay well for his future ventures, and I hope that he will remain a valued member of our community and join us to celebrate our 150th anniversary milestone this year”.
