The Central Coast Law Society has donated $4,000 to Rondeley, a Domestic Violence Program based on the Central Coast. Rondeley assists women by providing crisis accommodation and finding long-term housing for women and children escaping domestic violence.
The President of the Central Coast Law Society, Rosemary Long said:
“Lawyers on the Central Coast deal with the victims of domestic violence on a daily basis through the Gosford and Wyong Local and District Courts and the family lawyers of the Central Coast are also assisting clients [in] domestic violence regularly.”
The donation will be used to fund two “get house ready” kits, including whitegoods, appliances and furniture.
Recent data gathered by the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOSCAR) shows that the Central Coast now has one of the highest rates of domestic violence in New South Wales.
