ARPA Management

The Australian Rehabilitation Providers Association Incorporated (ARPA) had its genesis in late 2001 after a period of consultation between various State and Territory associations representing occupational and vocational rehabilitation providers around Australia. It was recognised that a national incorporated non-profit association was required to lead the industry and coordinate responses to major issues around the country.  Professional standards, business viability under various jurisdictional systems, performance measurement and industry representation were identified as major challenges which needed to be addressed at that time.

The Australian Rehabilitation Professionals Association relies on four pillars. Each of these pillars has their own responsibility ensuring ARPA remains a healthy and well-respected industry association.

  • ARPA Executive Council
  • ARPA National Council
  • ARPA State Branches
  • ARPA National Staff
