Lending a hand to Victims of Family Violence

Recently Victims Assistance Program Manager, Benita Marson had the privilege to attend a Ballroom Dancing gathering in Ballarat. Whilst Benita had the pleasure to watch the dancing and indulge in an afternoon tea, she also represented Centacare proudly receiving a donation. The generous donation presented by Mr Lance Jewell from Dancing Ballroom, has been allocated to support victims of family violence.

Centacare were honoured to receive the donation last year from the dance group, which aided a victim’s family to install a home security system assisting the family to feel safe and secure. This year the donation will be assisting a victim in similar circumstances.

The Victims Assistance Program offers information and practical support for victims of a violent crime against a person, their families or anyone affected. For more information contact the Centacare support line on 1300 033 818.
