Denis Fitzgerald

Executive Director Catholic Social Service




Denis Fitzgerald has been Executive Director of Catholic Social Services Victoria since 2008. In that role he has led policy and advocacy work on a range of issues including criminal justice, human rights, disability care and Government funding arrangements. During that period, Catholic Social Services Victoria has also developed a series of programs around parishes as centres of service: parishes learning from each other about options and resources to enable support for asylum seekers, and services to those in need in the community in which they are located.

Denis' earlier careers were in international relations, with a focus on the South Pacific and international economic development; and in policy and legislation development with the Victorian Government. His academic background includes studies in philosophy, economics and accounting, and public policy.
