Vickie Fair

Acting Aboriginal Team Leader, Senior Statewide Educator Aboriginal Programs

Vickie Fair is a Biripi Aboriginal woman and mother of six children with kinship cultural connections to Kamiliaroi, living and raising family on Tharawal and Gundungurra lands.

Vickie’s family and community have lived experienced of the Stolen Generations: Vickie’s mum, aunties and uncles were stolen from their cultural lands and taken off-Country to the Cootamundra Girls Home and Kinchela Boys Home – not a “Home” environment.

Vickie’s personal insight gives strength to Vickie’s commitment to taking a Human Rights lens to all aspects of her work – casework, research, clinical and therapeutic interventions, policy and legal advocacy.

Vickie is committed to improving access to sexual assault services for Aboriginal children, young people, adults and community. With over 20 years’ experience advocating for the community in which she lives, raises children and works, Vickie prioritises cultural safety, identifying strengths and assets for those impacted by racism, violence, sexual violence and human rights violations, whilst concurrently working to address systemic/ideological/professional/legal barriers.

Vickie holds a Bachelor of Social Work (UNSW), Bachelor of Laws (UNSW), and Graduate Certificate in Legal Practice (NSW College of Law).
