Our Staff

At the Gawler Cancer Foundation we’ve been helping people to reach a new level of wellbeing for over 30 years. We’ve seen hope restored and lives transformed. But who are we?

We’re a highly skilled team of dedicated and passionate therapists, horticulturalists, cooks and individuals. We believe in what we teach at The Gawler Cancer Foundation and we see the difference it makes to the lives of those who walk through our doors. We work as a team to bring the very best educational lifestyle support and services to people faced with life’s biggest challenge, a diagnosis of cancer or multiple sclerosis. We’re also dedicated to building strength and resilience in individuals who are at a cross roads or simply want more out of life.

Barry Money CEO Yarra Valley Living Centre

Barry Money
CEO

I have enjoyed a great career spanning the globe in start-ups, founder-operated businesses and corporate organisations, which has furnished me with many skills for my role here as CEO of The Gawler Cancer Foundation; and it is an extraordinary opportunity to integrate my personal values with an organisation that is transforming the lives of so many people.
I started my study of Eastern philosophy and meditation at the age of 11, where I found that meditation and Qigong could still my ever-active and creative mind, and lift my focus. I spent many years immersed in both the hard and soft aspects of martial arts, and my journey led me to Japan at twenty-years of age, where I lived for ten years.
My family has sadly been touched by cancer and other illnesses, and so my role as CEO  extends beyond the role, it has something deeply personal attached to it.
The Gawler Cancer Foundation has an extremely strong position in its field. The programs, the 7 essential elements and the network of generous supporters have served it well over the years. Everywhere I look, I see such potential. Potential to expand the amazing work that the Foundation delivers. Potential to share our learning and experience. Potential to help so many more people.
