You can be involved in protecting and growing women’s refuges and health centres by making a donation to SOS Women’s Services. Leichhardt Women’s and some of our close partners established SOS in 2014 to save women’s refuges in the city from closure. After that successful campaign we broadened our advocacy to improving the funding of women’s refuges across NSW. We’re itching for more improvements and we currently have two major proposals with the NSW Government – to establish Domestic Violence Prevention Clinics in every women’s health centre in NSW and to update women’s refuges from the communal model of living to independent units with support, starting with four pilot sites.
You can be part of this exciting work by donating to Leichhardt Women’s Community Health Centre/SOS Women’s Services. You could pay by EFT to BSB 062193 Account number 00800600. Be sure to email us confirming your donation including your name and address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You could make a cheque payable to Leichhardt Women’s Community Health Centre. Post to Manager, LWCHC/SOS Women’s Services PO Box 240 Leichhardt 2040, or visit the centre and donate by cash or EFTPOS. We’re at 55 Thornley Street Leichhardt (cnr Cary Street), open Monday to Friday 9.30am-5.30pm (closed 1-2pm).
Donations $2 and above are tax deductible.
