Posted in children, city of fremantle, domestic violence, state government, Uncategorized, women by freoview on June 26, 2020

The State Government, through Lotterywest, has provided a $50,000 grant to the Lucy Saw Centre.

This grant will help its centres, based in Rockingham and Fremantle, to support women and children experiencing domestic and family violence.

Established in 1977, the Lucy Saw Centre offers tailored wraparound services to more than 800 women and children in need each year.

The organisation which operates two refuges, a Safe at Home Program and a Coordinated Response Service is one of the latest grant recipients to receive funding from Lotterywest’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.

The State Government, through Lotterywest, has committed $159 million into a COVID-19 Relief Fund to respond to the hardship being experienced by the Western Australian community as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lotterywest’s COVID-19 Relief Fund is helping to meet costs related to increased demand for crisis relief services impacted by COVID-19.

LOUNGEROOM COMFORT AT FREMANTLE DOCKERS WOMEN GAMES

Posted in afl, city of fremantle, community, football, fremantle dockers, sport, Uncategorized, women by freoview on February 8, 2020

The City of Fremantle has partnered with the Fremantle Dockers to create a very comfy new fan experience at AFLW games at Fremantle Oval this season.

The Visit Fremantle Chillout Deck will give Freo supporters the chance to lay back on artificial lawn and lounge furniture while enjoying the best seat in the house on the raised and shaded deck at the southern end of the oval. 

Food and beverages will be available for purchase on the deck, with exclusive giveaways on offer for some lucky Freo fans.

There will also be free icy poles for the kids, face painting, giant Jenga and other lawn games on offer.

Entry to all AFLW games at Fremantle Oval this season is free, but access to the deck is first-come first-in and capacity is limited, so fans are advised to arrive early to secure their spot.

The female Dockers had a great season last year, with six wins from seven games, so we can expect a great game this Sunday.

The Visit Fremantle Chillout Deck kicks off this Sunday, when Fremantle take on Geelong in their first game of the 2020 NAB AFL Women’s competition. Gates open at 1.10pm.

The car park inside Fremantle Oval, car park 16 on Parry Street and the Cappuccino Strip car park on South Terrace will be closed to the general public.

Fremantle’s other AFLW matches at Fremantle Oval this season are against Collingwood on 22 February, Brisbane on 8 March and Melbourne on 22 March.

I’ll see you all there!

NO TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN!

Posted in city of fremantle, crime, family, Uncategorized, violence, women by freoview on November 22, 2019

 

The City of Fremantle is helping raise awareness of violence against women by hosting a White Ribbon Day event on Friday 22 November.

White Ribbon Day, which is officially commemorated on 25 November, is an internationally recognised day of action and calls upon all Australians to stand up, speak out and act to stop violence against women.

Fremantle Acting Mayor Andrew Sullivan said on average per year, one woman was killed every week in Australia as a result of domestic violence.

“Violence against women in any way is unacceptable and we hope Fremantle’s White Ribbon Day event will raise critical awareness of an issue that is very important in our community,” Acting Mayor Sullivan said.

“It’s imperative we all work together to build and foster a community where every woman lives in safety, free from all forms of abuse.”

This year, the Fremantle Community Legal Centre, Fremantle Library and The Meeting Place have joined forces to build an origami display ahead of Friday’s White Ribbon Day event.

Fremantle residents, workers and visitors are encouraged to visit Henderson Street Mall (the open space between Fremantle Markets and Sail & Anchor) between 11am–2pm and take part in the origami display.

People can hang their own white paper crane, which will have stories of victims printed on them, and support the campaign to end domestic violence.

While White Ribbon Australia has recently closed its doors, supporters and communities are encouraged to continue raising their voice alongside the international White Ribbon movement. For more information, visit whiteribbon.ca

STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN!

The 16 days VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN campaign held a breakfast on the lawn of the WA Shipwrecks Museum in Fremantle this morning.

It is very disturbing to hear that domestic violence in Australia has been increasing over the last years, and that is not acceptable!

SPEAK OUT AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!

Early notice that it is White Ribbon Day on Friday and that there will be a floral installation in Fremantle’s Henderson Street between the Sail&Anchor and Fremantle Markets from 9am to 1pm.

Domestic violence, mainly against women, is an abhorrent crime that has been increasing in Australia, and that needs to be stopped!
