Gordon Ramsay is a long-term, well-known and much-respected Canberran.
He lives in Latham with his family, and has worked at Kippax Uniting Church for the past 19 years, establishing and growing UnitingCare Kippax as one of Canberra’s best known and respected community service bodies. Belconnen is both his home and his passion. He loves this city and is determined to help it continue to build on the inclusive, human rights leadership of the past 15 years. He is dedicated to making this city a place where everyone can belong, be valued and have the opportunity to participate fully
Gordon has been involved in a wide range of local and ACT-wide bodies, all of which have aimed to improve the quality of life for Canberrans, especially those who are doing it tough. He has worked in ACT Anti Poverty Week, ACTCOSS, and has been a member of the ACT Community Inclusion Board and a Community Inclusion Advocate. He was a Community Champion for the 2020 Time To Talk movement. He is a member of the ACT Better Services Taskforce, which is bringing together the Human Services in the ACT to make sure that people are placed at the centre. In 2012, Gordon led the ACT Targeted Assistance Strategy.
A lawyer before his movement into the community sector, Gordon brings clear thinking and understanding to his work, his advocacy and the way that he relates to people of all ages. He has been in leadership positions not only in Canberra, but also across Australia for many years. He combines compassion, vision, energy and experience.
He was recognised in 2014 as a finalist in the Act Local Hero category of the Australian of the Year awards.
In his relaxing moments, Gordon is likely to be found (or heard) at the Brumbies, where he has been a season ticket holder for well over a decade. In other times he cooks: and often there will be one Gordon Ramsay preparing the recipes of the other Gordon Ramsay.
