Yes - I am a Director of a registered charity in Australia, Cataract Kids Australia. This is an unpaid role. Cataract Kids Australia has a memorandum of understanding with the professional organisation Orthoptics Australia and under this agreement Cataract Kids receives a small discount in the registration fee to participate in the annual Orthoptics Australia conference. In October 2018, as director of Cataract Kids Australia I was funded by a NZ charity 'Parents of Vision Impaired New Zealand' (PVINZ) to give a keynote address at their annual conference in Wellington NZ. PVINZ paid for my flights, hotel accommodation and conference registration. I am employed full time by the University of Melbourne as a Research Fellow at Melbourne Law School. I do not receive any commercial or quasi-commercial funding in connection with my role.
