Our Team

We work together to enable children with complex disability and their families to live the best lives they can. We are a proud and passionate bunch and we put our families at the heart of everything we do. Meet some of the people who make up the Xavier team.

Richard Littler, CEO

Hi I'm Richard, the CEO of the Xavier Children’s Support Network.  Xavier has supported the needs of children with profound medical and disability needs since 1949 through a mission and vision based on catholic teachings.  We have a long and proud history that plays a huge part in the Xavier of today and in my role of guiding our organisation into a new phase. As CEO, I am passionate about supporting our stakeholders, workforce and most importantly our families. In doing this, I strive to ensure that the legacy of Xavier is honoured and respected.  I possess substantial experience in the community care sector.  Prior to joining Xavier, I worked with Centacare Brisbane and Southern Cross Care Qld.

Robyn Last, Allied Health Manager

I have worked for many years in the disability sector starting out as a Speech Pathologist.  I joined the Xavier team in mid 2017 and haven’t looked back! My role at Xavier is to build our multidisciplinary allied health team so that we can provide a range of therapy supports to assist our children and young people to reach their full potential.  It’s so rewarding to see how our support enables our families and our children to give them a better quality of live.  I feel very privileged to be working alongside a very, dedicated team to ensure that our clients and their families are supported to achieve their goals. This is a really exciting time to be a part of the Xavier team. I look forward to Xavier’s exciting future and the journey ahead.

Sandra Anderson, Support Services Manager

I’m Sandra, the Support Services Manager.   I have been working in the Community and Disability services sector for more years than I’d like to say!  I am so lucky to have had a broad range of roles across these diverse areas and to have worked with many wonderful clients and families over the years.

I am passionate about ensuring we provide individualised services tailored specifically for each person to help children, young adults and their families achieve their goals.

It’s an exciting time as we assist families with their transition to the NDIS supporting their choice and control.

I have qualifications in Social Science, Management and Residential Care but more importantly, the knowledge provided to me by so many generous people with disabilities and their families that I have had and continue to have the privilege of working with.
