2023 NSW Senior Volunteer of the Year Announced

Congratulations to the 2023 NSW Adult Volunteer of the Year: Leanne Hillman, Victims and Witnesses of Crime Court Support.


Victims and Witnesses of Crime Court Support provide assistance to vulnerable community members as they engage with the criminal justice system.

The formality of the court environment, protocols and language are completely unfamiliar to most witnesses further amplifying what is already a very stressful situation. Leanne prepared her clients so that they understood court protocols and the process of giving evidence – Nominator


Leanne Hillman has played an essential role in supporting victims, witnesses and the VWCCS itself, including:

  • Joining and now managing the inaugural Operational Management Committee starting in 2012.
  • Acting as Treasurer for the Incorporation Committee from 2012 to 2022.
  • Ensuring compliance with all regulatory requirements.
  • Assisting the Induction and Training Programmes by interviewing applicants.

Leanne’s range of responsibilities make a significant contribution to the professional stature and contribution made by VWCCS within the legal justice system – Nominator
