Congratulations to our Director of Children, Family and Communities Robyn Antenucci who was recently appointed as the newest board member with the Centre for Women's Safety and Well-being (CWSW).
Other joining members include Mel Rowe (Orana House), Kelda Oppermann (Zonta House) and Justine Colyer (Rise Network); Dawn Smith (OVIS Community Services); Nikki Lambert (Allambee Counselling); Andrea Creado (Ishar Multicultural Women's Health Service); and Gloria Moyle (Goldfields Women's Health Care Centre).
CWSW is a West Australian peak body committed to improving the status and outcomes of women and children in society. Since its establishment 30 years ago, this has primarily been achieved through influencing policy and legislative work, designing and delivering practice-informed training and resources, and facilitating awareness events and workshops.
Their core work is focussed on building the capability of all members in society to better understand and respond to signs of domestic violence, and effectively eliminate it.
The centre also engages with victims and survivors to drive for systemic-level reforms – tying into White Ribbon Australia's efforts in advocacy, including the current push to criminalise coercive control.
Just as Robyn has greatly supported our service delivery objectives in the areas of Families and Community Safety and Wellbeing, we are certain her extensive experience in in policy-reform across various government agencies will enable her to make a valued contribution to the CWSW Board.
