Purple Bench project

The community of Kalgoorlie-Boulder recently got together for the launch of the Sandalwood Family Centre’s purple bench.

The Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing’s Purple Bench Project supports the installations of a series of purple benches in public spaces to honour all victims killed as a result of family and domestic violence (FDV).

The launch event was attended by more than 65 people, where the crowd was addressed by Goldfields Women’s Health Care Centre‘s chief executive, Gloria Moyle. Our centre extends a special thank you to to Suzie Williams and all the team at Kalgoorlie’s Finlayson House, who work on the ground to care for women in the community.

Our benches are now situated in our undercover areas and we thank you all the organisations involved in making this happen.
