The Lismore Women’s Resource Centre has six new volunteers after the Women Resourced and Volunteering for Empowerment (WRAVE) project was successful last year in receiving $54,000 in funding from the Attorney General Department’s Proceeds of Crime Act Funding.

The women will assist with providing information, referral and resources at the Centre.

“Having a team of volunteers will enable the centre to be open for longer hours,” project officer Danielle Notara said. “It is also a great opportunity for women to be involved in and take ownership of the centre and its activities.”

The Lismore Women’s Resource Centre, on Woodlark Street, is open Monday to Thursday from 9am until 4.30pm and provides information and referral to women on a variety of issues including health, housing, finances, legal, domestic and family violence, and children’s issues. The Centre also has a free domestic violence counselling service and free access for women to computers and the internet. For more information phone 6622 5551 or visit www.norwacs.org.au.
