Leonora Women's Refuge Proposal
The subject of a future Leonora Women’s Refuge was raised at the NGIAM, on 21 April 2018.
It was agreed to begin preliminary discussions with Community, Government Agencies and Service Providers to identify if there was a need for a women’s refuge.
Currently the Commonwealth and State Government have no plans to establish a safe house in Leonora. It was suggested that the Leonora Community lead a working party to lobby government for funding; noting that whoever runs the safe house will need permanent secure operational funding.
A sub committee was created to progress the concept, and community participation is strongly encouraged - and you can always head over to our Brainstormer tab to join the discussion.
If you feel that you can contribute to this committee to lobby for a safe house in Leonora, please contact Tralee Cable, on 0439 283 234 or email@example.com , for further information.
