Executive Officer at the Lucy Saw Centre, Anne Moore, is grateful for a $110,000 COVID-19 Relief Fund grant which will help its two refuges to operate 24 hours a day, as well as supporting their Safe at Home program and a response team.

She says the centre will be able to continue to provide a safe, welcoming environment for women and children escaping family violence, if incidents increase later this year as predicted.

 “The grant means that we can provide security as well as offering opportunities to women from non-English speaking backgrounds with no income,” she says.
