GUEST SPEAKERS

Robyn Cotterell-Jones Joined The Victims of Crime Assistance League (VOCAL) NSW in 1992 as volunteer and a victim of serious, life changing Domestic Violence, seeking support, sanity and system change after the criminal legal system failed her. VOCAL t was at that time a self-help Homicide support group and under Robyn's leadership over 25 years, the group grew as a needs based charity and a funded non-government organisation, caring for any type of crime victim and their non-offending supporters. On leave prior to retirement from the CEO position, Robyn has received many awards for her strength and determination, advocacy and support for others such as Newcastle's woman of the year (twice) Lifeline's Steel Magnolia, has been a finalist 3 times for the NSW Justice Medal, and was was awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in 2016 for service to the community through helping victims of crime find hope and courage. Robyn has relocated to Melbourne to be with her daughter and baby grandson.

Weda Mohseni arrived in Australia as a refugee from Afghanistan and commenced studies at Chisholm in 2010. She has since completed certificates in General Education, English as a Second Language (ESL), Advanced Language (LLNP) and a dual diploma in community services and case management. Weda has continued this inspiring journey since graduating and now works as a case worker at Connections Uniting Care, providing services to meet the needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged people in our community.
