Geoff Collins, CDP Activities Coordinator

Geoff joined TITEB in May 2019 after six years working for RJCP/CDP in Arnhem Land. After a brief stint as Post Placement Support Consultant, he moved into his current position.

Brenda is a qualified chef and teacher. She grew up in Cooktown FNQ and has lived in Ramingining, Galiwinku and Milingimbi working as an Employment Consultant, Women’s Activity Coordinator and Site Manager. Her main goal for the Women’s Centre is to help Tiwi women build their skills and independence – and to try some bush food!
