Matthew wants to ensure volunteers’ time is valued and the government does more to recognise the important role P&Cs and parent engagement play in education in our state schools.

Matthew is a software engineer who looked for a software solution to help with processes, governance and compliance in his role as a P&C Executive Member. When he couldn’t find one, he decided to build it. He was accepted into a start-up accelerator supported to help build a company to support volunteers. Through this work, Matthew has been involved with helping many P&Cs, associations and non-profit organisations around Queensland, Australia and the world, and is working with P&Cs Qld to help support P&Cs specifically around the P&Cs Qld stated mission of state-of-the-art services.
