Constable Care Foundation (CCF) is pleased to announce Ian Anstee has been appointed as the new CEO of the organisation.

An experienced leader in the human services and arts sector in the United Kingdom and Western Australia, Ian will succeed David Gribble, who steps down after twelve years of outstanding service to CCF.

Since 2018, Ian has held the role of CEO of Investing in our Youth (IIOY) in WA, where he successfully led the charge to transition the organisation from offering a community-based service to a professional state-wide service.

I feel incredibly privileged to step into the CEO role at an organisation I am truly passionate about. I’m honoured the Board has entrusted me with the opportunity, and I look forward to working with the dedicated team at CCF,” Mr Anstee said.

As a respected voice in the area of mental health in children and young people, Ian was part of the expert advisory group for the Ministerial enquiry into Mental Health for Infants, Children and Young People and has served on the development board for the proposed Bunbury Mental Health Hub. He is currently a board member of the Bunbury Mental Health Consortium and South-West Suicide Prevention Network.

Susan Fleming, Chairperson at CCF, said the Board was sad to see Mr Gribble leave, but they were thrilled to welcome Ian as the incoming CEO.

We are deeply grateful for the service David has provided CCF over twelve years with the organisation. During his tenure, he has created tremendous change and led the team through some challenging times. It was with sadness we accepted his resignation to follow his studies.”

On behalf of the Board, we would like to thank David for his important work and his dedicated service to the West Australian community. We wish him well as he focuses his energies on completing his Doctorate.”

“As we look to the future with Ian at the helm, we are unanimous in our support. He is a welcome addition to the CCF family. With his experience and passion for the health of children and young people, we are confident he will continue to create positive change and lead the organisation forward,” Susan said.

Ian brings a wealth of experience to CCF and will commence his new role on 23 January 2023 with outgoing CEO David Gribble, providing a comprehensive handover before finishing on 31 January 2023.
