The Hon. Ingrid Stitt MP

Minister for Mental Health, Minister for Ageing, Minister for Multicultural Affairs


Before entering Parliament, Ingrid fought for low paid workers across the private and public sectors. She was Secretary for the Victorian Branch of the Australian Services Union between 2004 and 2018.  

Ingrid’s family has lived in Melbourne’s west for more than 20 years. She wants to ensure it remains a great place to live, work and raise a family. This is what prompted her to run for Parliament.

The priorities Ingrid has for her community are to ensure all families have access to world-class public hospitals, schools, early learning facilities, transport infrastructure, and green open spaces. She is also deeply committed to supporting the growth of safe and secure local jobs in Melbourne’s growing western suburbs, and ensuring that vulnerable community members have the support they need. 

Ingrid is passionate about delivering person centered care in both the mental health and ageing service systems and she values the hard work and dedication of our workforce in delivering high quality care that Victorians can rely on. As Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Ingrid believes that Victoria’s diversity is one of our state’s greatest strengths. She recognises the contribution that our proud multicultural communities make to our state stronger and fairer.
