The end of the financial year is upon us!
There is surely no better time than the present to make a donation to Women’s Health West, and support the work we do to ensure women in the west live safe and health lives.
Donations over $2 are tax deductible, and the funds we receive are vital for supporting the positive impact our work has in the community.
In the financial year 2015-16, we:
- Supported 4,965 women who were experiencing family violence through one off telephone and face-to-face support.
- Provided 57 women and 74 children with crisis accommodation and support to recover from family violence
- Provided a crisis response to 146 women, and intensive case management to 37 women.
Donations we receive also support the programs we undertake to improve the health and wellbeing of women in our community.
This includes our Sunrise social groups for isolated women who are living with disabilities, Lead On Again, our leadership development program for local young women, the respectful relationships education we deliver in schools, and financial literacy courses for culturally and linguistically diverse women.
Year on year, demand for our services grows. We received 10,545 family violence police referrals in 2015-16, a 29% increase on the year before.
Show your support. Make a donation today and support Women’s Health West to achieve equity and justice for women in the west.
