Meet Our Community Manager

Former Sergeant of the NSW Police Force, awarded Commissioner’s Medal of Courage and NSW Police Leadership Award, and a nominee for Local Hero, NSW of the Australian of the Year 2020 Awards, our Community Manager Danny Mikati works tirelessly to help empower individuals and communities.

Danny Mikati’s appointment as Community Manager adds a new dimension to Alliance Project Group’s offerings. His mission is to empower individuals and communities to help them achieve their greatest potential, and believes that true success is measured by the number of people flourishing around you. His vocation as a private consultant and as a director at AusRelief, an Australian humanitarian aid charity, are just a couple of ways he brings his mission to life.

Danny is a former Sergeant of the NSW Police Force and spent many years in the force as a Domestic Violence Team Leader where he managed and coordinated responses to domestic violence. In 2006, he was awarded the Commissioner’s Medal of Courage for his valiant response to a critical family violence incident. In 2008, he was awarded the NSW Police Leadership Award in Domestic Violence.

As a White Ribbon Ambassador and guest university lecturer, Danny is recognised as a Domestic and Family Violence subject matter expert across many disciplines. He has pioneered community-central programs and has been invited to speak on public forums including the recent United Nations International Women’s Day 2019 event.

In his time as the NSW Police Force Community Engagement Specialist for the Southwest Metropolitan, Danny led strong impacting initiatives to address high risk and complex social issues. His efforts were recognised in 2017 when he received the title of ‘Community Fellow’ from Western Sydney University for his “significant contribution and impact on the social, economic, cultural, environmental and technological development of the Greater Western Sydney Region”.

Danny’s experience and skill to speak on and dissect matters that affect the community, places him in a special position to advocate for and effect change as Community Manager at Alliance.
