CEO, Melissa Perry along with Director, Community Safety and Wellbeing, Mary-Rose Tomeo and other Communicare staff showed their support for White Ribbon Day 2018 and attended the Annual Silent Domestic Violence Memorial March held at Supreme Court Gardens in Perth on Friday, 23 November.
We joined the Hon. Simone McGurk, Police Commissioner Chris Dawson, representatives from Women's Council, the Department of Communities and other like-minded organisations, and marched through the streets of Perth in honour of all the women, men and children who have lost their lives as a result of family and domestic violence.
This year the shocking statistic is 28 lives have been lost since December 2017 due to domestic violence. The resounding message at the gathering was one death, is one too many.
A big thank you to all staff for showing their support throughout our White Ribbon Week 2018 and sharing Communicare's commitment in driving social change and creating safety within our workplace and community.
