Zonta House Refuge Association – Community Donations Needed


On 16 – 29 October we are appealing to staff and the community for donations of new and/or used items to Zonta House Refuge Association. 

Statistics show that domestic and family violence is most likely to be committed by men against women. Domestic and family violence is a pattern of abusive behaviour in an intimate relationship or family relationship where one person assumes a position of power over another and causes fear. Donations will help support women over the age of 18 who are in Zonta’s crises centre, transitional housing and women who have moved into their own safe and stable accommodation.

The 1800respect information and telephone counselling service is available 24/7: 1800 737 732.
