Family Violence Support

Supporters & Corporate Friends

Stopping family violence is a 'whole of community' responsibility. Every form of contribution, no matter how big or how small, can help WRISC provide critical support to women and children escaping family violence.

Kind and generous donations from organisations, private philanthropists and various grants enable us to continue to service the increasing number of requests for help. We sincerely thank our loyal and generous supporters.

How can you help?

We continue to seek sponsors and corporate friends to assist us to continue to do the work we do. These relationships can be flexible and tailored to best meet the capacity and interests of you or your organisation. For example, you might:
  • Commit funds to support specific services WRISC provides (eg. safe at home, court support, children's counselling, etc)
  • Sponsor additional staff, or a percentage of a staff position, to enable more women to access our service.
  • Make one-off or regular donations to WRISC.
  • Conduct fundraising activities for WRISC, or nominate WRISC as the recipient of fundraising events or workplace giving.
All donations to WRISC Family Violence Support are tax deductible. We would love to discuss options about support with you. Please contact WRISC on (03) 5333 3666 and ask to speak to the Business Manager, or click here to go to the Donate Page.
