Tomago Aluminium says no to violence

December 14, 2017

Tomago Aluminium ran not one, but two White Ribbon Days recently to highlight the issue of domestic violence, asking staff to pledge to say no to violence.

They raised $740 and donated this money to our Staying Home Leaving Violence (SHLV) program to assist women and children escaping domestic and family violence.

The money has been distributed to several families. One for security upgrades and lock changes. We also helped another mother and her children with emergency accommodation for several nights in a safe location until we were able to find her a permanent safe accommodation option and get her legal assistance and support from our case workers.

We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Tomago and their generous staff . They have helped make these families safe and minimised the emotional trauma they have been experiencing. It gives these families time to breathe whilst we help them plan for a safe future for their families.
