Kevin Boyce was a business owner until he sustained a significant injury almost 20 years ago. He has lived experience with the Alfred Trauma Service and is now an advocate for people living with disability and visual impairment.
Kevin lives in a rural area so has insight into the challenges for patients and families who need access to specialist health services in Melbourne.
In the past, Kevin has been an active community participant at several health services, including volunteering in the DHHS peer support program for people living with disability.
He was a member of Victoria Eye and Ear Hospital Community Advisory Group for four years, a member of Peter MacCallum Hospital Community Advisory Group and specifically supported the development of their disability action plan. He was also a member of St Vincent’s Community Advisory Committee.
