Hedland says no to violence

25 Nov, 2016

On Friday 2 December men and women, from all areas of the local community in Hedland, united to march to help stop men's violence against women.

There was an amazing turnout this year, with more than 150 marchers from community services, mining resources centres, local community people, church groups and Aboriginal services. 

The morning started off with a brisk walk around the town centre, followed by speeches from ambassadors of White Ribbon Day, and finished off by gathering for a wonderful breakfast sponsored by Fortescue Metals Group.

We have been a part of the Hedland Says No to Violence Action Group for more than six years, working alongside many other organisations including the Hedland Women’s Refuge, Well Women’s Centre, Bloodwood Tree, YIC and Department of Child Protection to help co-ordinate the White Ribbon march.

We have been providing support services since 1989 to men, women and children who have experienced or been affected in any way by domestic abuse.

Our services include the Family Abuse Integrated Response (FAIR) program and Djinda Services (Perth Aboriginal Family Violence Prevention Legal Service).
