Meaningful Ageing Australia welcomes Paul Sadler to board

Not-for-profit organisation Meaningful Ageing Australia has appointed Paul Sadler as a new board director.

Not-for-profit organisation Meaningful Ageing Australia – which promotes evidence-based spiritual care for the ageing population – has appointed Paul Sadler as a new board director.

A long-standing aged care advocate, Mr Sadler served as chief executive officer of former peak body Aged & Community Services Australia from September 2021 to October 2022.

Mr Sadler was instrumental in helping to establish the peak that replaced ACSA – Aged & Community Care Providers Association, for which he was interim CEO from June to October 2022.

Up until March 2021, Mr Sadler was also CEO of faith-based, not-for-profit provider Presbyterian Aged Care – a role he held for 14 years.

“My desire is to give back to the aged care sector through voluntary board membership – and to be part of the Meaningful Ageing Australia board is very worthwhile for me,” said Mr Sadler. “The centrality of spirituality to older people’s lives resonates with me strongly.”

Meaningful Ageing Australia chair Nick Ryan said he was “grateful and delighted” to welcome Mr Sadler to the board.

“His skills and experience in advocacy, government relations, governance, and theology will be an important part of the board’s support of our organisation’s revised strategic direction against the changing environment of the sector.”

News of Mr Sadler’s Meaningful Ageing Australia board director role comes just weeks after it was announced he is the new chair of Meals on Wheels Australia.
