Keelan Patten

PSP OOHC Support Team Manager

I am a proud Bundjalung and Yorta Yorta man who was born and raised on Wonnarua country.

Prior to my time with Wandiyali, I have held various roles with the Department of Education as well as TAFE NSW where I provided support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students studying locally and students studying within away from base programs.

In addition to these roles, I had the opportunity to work within my own community, working with at risk children providing early intervention programs as a Youth Worker for Mindaribba Local Aboriginal Land Council.

Since joining Wandiyali in 2019, I am committed to provide a service that will continue to improve the outcomes and relationships for children and families in the Out of Home Care sector.
