Tim has shared his story with Amber Community since 2001 when he volunteered for the Prison Fellowship and developed a program called ‘Lives In Transition’ where he worked in Barwon and Port Phillip prisons as well as visiting prisoners at St Augustine’s prison ward and St Vincent’s hospital.
Tim conducted seminars engaging with prisoners, staff and volunteers working with prisoners in many organisations, such as VACRO, on the Psychological impact of incarceration and the Impact of Trauma.
2010-2013, Tim was a road-safe community representative on the VicRoads ‘Road Safety Alliance’. This was an inter-Governmental committee that brought together organisations running road safety programs from across the state of Victoria and connected them with all local and state Government departments responsible for the impact of road safety. This is where Tim first met the staff and supported the activities of Amber Community.
On completing his three-year tenure on the road safe committee, Tim decided to Join the team at Amber Community.
He has since been involved in sharing his story at the Road Police Investigators Course over approximately two years. He also started speaking at our Road Trauma Awareness Seminar (RTAS) program in 2014 and has continued to do so since then.
Tim presented at HMAS Cerberus, delivering road safety seminars to over 1000 sailors on base. He contributes to the Driving Better Choices program and has been a valued member of the Research and Evaluation Committee since 2019.
Tim has been an integral part of our organisation for many years. His willingness to share his story, skills and expertise have been an important contribution and support, especially to Chris Harrison, Manager Education Services and Bernadette Nugent, CEO.
We welcome Tim as an honorary life member. We thank him for his commitment to road safety, supporting people impacted by road trauma and his ongoing contributions to Amber Community.
