The Activ board has established standing and ad hoc committees/working groups which assist in carrying out its responsibilities. Each committee has board-approved terms of reference setting out its role, composition, powers, responsibilities, structure, resourcing and administration.
Finance, Audit, Risk & Governance Committee (Chair: Andrew Hillbeck)
The Finance, Audit, Risk & Governance Committee is formed to assist the Board to oversee, monitor and review Activ’s financial, property and investment planning processes, reporting systems and policies and establish and maintain effective risk management, compliance, assurance, internal controls and governance structures to safeguard resources (people, information, assets), support decision making and achievement of Activ’s legal, constitutional and code of conduct objectives and obligations. The Committee also has responsibility to review and analyse the monthly financials and the underlying performance of the business
People, Safety & Culture Committee (Chair: Dale Calhoun)
The People, Safety and Culture Committee is formed to advise and assist the Board in fostering and monitoring a culture in which health safety and wellbeing of Activ’s people is prioritised. In addition, the Committee provides oversight and, where appropriate, governance in people management and employee experience as well as remuneration, nomination, appointment and performance of Directors, the CEO and senior executives.
Customer, Quality & Safeguarding Committee (Chair: Michelle d'Almeida)
The Customer, Quality & Safeguarding Committee is formed with the forward-facing role of assisting the Board in reviewing and monitoring the delivery of Activ’s Customer Strategy, customer and stakeholder consultation frameworks, policy and processes, relevant to the provision of supports and protection of customer rights.
The Committee also has a retrospective focus, concentrating on reviewing and monitoring how Activ has delivered against its quality and safeguarding frameworks and management systems, policies and processes. This includes overseeing reportable incidents and trends in reporting to provide governance and assurance for the organisation in relation to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements (including the requirements of the NDIS, State Government authorities and clinical safeguarding authorities). The Committee will draw on external expertise to support Activ to have a broad understanding and expertise as needed to support the required outcomes.

The Disability Royal Commission (DRC) Working Group was established by the Board in 2019 to provide direction and advice to the Board to respond to the Royal Commission’s terms of reference, findings and recommendations.
