The team from Communicare Tuart House had a welcome visit from WA Labor last week to present a $40,000 grant to the service, which supports women and their children in the South West who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness because of Family and Domestic Violence.
The much welcome funds were presented to our team last Friday by the Hon. Dave Kelly MLA, Minister for Water, Forestry, Innovation and ICT; Science and Youth, and Chris Hossen, Labor Candidate for Vasse.
Communicare and White Ribbon Australia CEO Melissa Perry said the funds would assist women and children during a very traumatic time in their lives and the lives of their children.
“It is a privilege to support these families to increase their safety and wellbeing and we are thankful for this contribution by the McGowan government,” Melissa said.
Also joining the Tuart House team last Friday were Mayor of Busselton, Grant Henley, and Labor Candidate for the South West, Jacqueline Jarvis.
