We will take some details from you regarding the institution where the abuse occurred, your age at the time of the abuse and details of the perpetrator and the nature of the abuse. This process takes 15 minutes.

The solicitor will contact you directly via phone or video link to discuss your matter.

3. If there is capacity for a claim and you wish to proceed, the law firm will send out paperwork to sign and will require your certified ID.

6. Warriors Advocacy and your law firm offers their full support throughout the whole claim, it crucial for you to understand that this is your story, and we are here to help you. We can recommend mental health, counselling, post release help and compassion.

5. Our interviewers prepare your statement and forward this to your solicitor.

4. From there, our very experienced interviewer will walk you through the process of providing a statement for your lawyer.

This process is conducted over the phone and is important for your claim to move forward.

Director and General Manager 

I am the General Manager and Director of Warriors Advocacy. I have worked extremely hard to be where I am today, my life experiences have shaped me into the person I am, who drives to help people and encourage them to see that they can succeed in life. 

My job gives me purpose as I am passionate about seeking justice and uncovering the truth behind childhood institutional abuse.

Outside of work, I enjoy playing Rugby Union, spending time at the gym, hanging out with my puppy, and all the people I love.




I work in the interviewer role. As an interviewer I ask a series of questions relating to the survivor’s life before the abuse, the abuse itself, and their life after or as a result of the abuse. I do so with respect, care, and consideration.​

I enjoy working in this field for too many reasons to list, but mainly, I like the feeling of providing support and care to people who may have only felt that from a handful of people, if anyone, in their lives. I hope that by working as an interviewer with a supportive approach, I can help survivors to be relieved of some of the pain and suffering they never deserved to experience.​

Outside of work, I love spending time in the gym with all of my favourite and like-minded people.



Office Manager

To describe my job in one word would be multi-tasker.

I am the office manager, administrator, initial claim consultant and bookings organizer.

I help people from when they first call, to booking them in for a consult and then taking their initial statement.

This can really rewarding as I am helping people start a new future and being there as support through the claim process.

As many of our clients have never spoken about their abuse, I am sometimes the first person that they have ever told.

This can be a very emotional process and I feel privileged that I am trusted with their story.

On my down time at home, I like to spend time with my children and go to the beach with my new puppies.




My role is to support clients through the process of sharing their very personal stories in a way that allows the full extent of the harm caused by child abuse to be captured. As an Interviewer, I am generally the first person to be trusted with this information and I acknowledge the responsibilities that come with this on so many different levels.

I have learned so many wonderful things about the resilience of the human spirit by listening to survivors of child abuse. At the end of the day, I go home feeling inspired and motivated by the strength and the courage shown by survivors and for that I am truly thankful.

I have a very strong interest in overcoming injustice, so I spend a lot of my free time reading and learning. Outside of work, I am personally involved in a number of community projects that are attempting to tackle some of the broader systemic issues that are facing Australians today so as someone who works towards creating social change, you could say that I am a bit of an activist.




I am the office receptionist, and I am generally the first person our clients talk to when they contact us.I assist our client’s with starting the process, booking them appointments/interviews, as well as a range of administrative duties.  

I enjoy working at Warriors Advocacy because I am trusted enough by our clients to be able to listen to them talk about their institutional abuse and help them throughout the whole claim process with care and compassion. I feel privileged that I can support them and help make a difference in their lives.  

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going for walks/runs along the Jetty and going to the gym.
