Western Sydney shines a light on domestic violence


Lifeline Macarthur and Western Sydney CEO Veronica Macdonald was thrilled to attend a special Glow at Sydney Zoo exhibition on June 11 – the biggest and brightest light festival in Western Sydney.


The evening, hosted for community leaders, special guests and dignitaries, was used to shine a light on family and domestic violence.


Veronica was able to discuss with other specialist organisations essential service requirements to assist people in need.  


She also met Councillor Brad Bunting, Mayor of Blacktown City, which is funding a range of programs and working with community partners to help combat domestic violence.


Workers Lifestyle Group, a major sponsor of the GLOW festival, invited Lifeline Macarthur and Western Sydney, along with community support workers and the families they were supporting, to share in a community event at Glow.


Workers used its sponsorship to raise awareness of domestic violence and the need for additional resources to address it in our community.


It arranged for a custom-built orange ribbon lantern to be installed to symbolise solidarity with organisations like Lifeline that work to support families affected by domestic and family violence.


Guests were able to enjoy a fun evening of light displays and rides. 


Workers Blacktown is a wonderful supporter of Lifeline's DV-alert training program, offering training facilities and catering in kind.


We are grateful for the support they offer and for the invitation to attend this fantastic event.
