Our Patron

Award-winning novelist, Blanche d’Alpuget, has been supporting Inala as patron since 1999

Blanche d’Alpuget first visited Inala in 1999 due to her interest in Rudolf Steiner. She was convinced Inala was unique, important, and worthy of her support, and generously agreed to become Inala’s patron. As our patron, Blanche is involved in many of our events, and is a strong advocate and champion for people living with disability. We are honoured by her long-standing support and commitment.
Blanche is a proflic author of works of fiction and non-fiction, and has won a number of literary awards. After taking a break from writing while establishing a consultancy business with her husband, the late Hon. R J Hawke AC, Blanche resumed writing and is currently working on her newest novel.
