In 2022 we supported 1919 Women with Domestic Violence Appointments885 were from Victoria.Victorian funding only covers 12 NEW Victorian domestic violence clients We saw over 100 NEW Victorian domestic violence clients This has created a budget shortfall of $300,000This funding shortfall has a direct impact on our existing services. We are unable to employ the people needed to make the difference to our three month long waiting lists for urgent services.Current projections show that to remain operational past the 2022 - 2023 Financial Year, the Women’s Centre must obtain funding from the Victorian Government that recognises the unfunded work currently being done.

International Day of People with Disability December 3rd 2022International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations (UN) observed day celebrated on 3 December each year. It is a day to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of people with disability and promote awareness, understanding and acceptance in our community.Around one in six people, or 4.4 million Australians, have disability. Not all disability is the same, and some disabilities are invisible. By joining the conversation and listening to the stories and lived experiences of people with disability, we can challenge our own perceptions about disability and help make positive changes in the community. The Women's Centre for Health and Wellbeing Albury Wodonga is accessable, to all women. Our concept of access has expanded with our being educated by the needs of our clients, and can include lowering lighting, providing quiet spaces, lowering or raising temperature, not assuming that a person may need assistance or want their mobility aids touched/wheelchair pushed. Some of our clients have invisable disabilities - we try not to make assumptions about people. This is an area that we are still learning about, every day, and will continue to learn more from our clients and from our community. #IDPwD2022 #internationaldayofpeoplewithdisability#advocacy #access #equality #education #albury #wodonga ...
