We’re sure that people will have noticed our orange flower garden that has popped up just past the Korumburra RSL Hall. Orange is the colour designated by the UN Secretary-General’s UniTE to End Violence against Women campaign. As a bright and optimistic colour the flowers represent our wish for our community bloom without violence, put your hand up and let’s change the story together.
If you are experiencing family violence there is help available. In addition to Safe Steps 1800 015 188 and other services currently being promoted, there are also a variety of specialised services worth knowing about so we have listed some below.
