Chief Executive, Lifewise
Everyone has a right to a place to call home and a way to contribute to their community. Blaming people who aren’t coping is not helpful and Moira Lawler knows this better than anyone. As the Chief Executive of Lifewise, Moira is responsible for a range of health, education and social services, as well as collaborative community projects. Moira has a background of over 30 years in community and economic development and is a pioneer of Housing First in New Zealand, a model that has gone on to be a successful collaboration of housing providers, adopted and funded by successive governments.
