Two purple benches are set to be unveiled in time for White Ribbon Day as the City of Bayswater and Orana House honour victims of domestic and family violence.
Part of a worldwide domestic violence awareness movement, the benches will be placed at Nora Hughes Park, Morley and Halliday Park, Bayswater.
City of Bayswater Mayor Dan Bull said that the purple benches aim to shine a light on an incredibly important issue.
“On average, domestic and family violence results in the death of one woman per week and one man per month in Australia every year, this is completely unacceptable.
“These benches are a reminder to all of us to check in on our friends and family, and to continue this important conversation within our community.
“I would like to thank Orana House for the important work they do, providing much needed services and support to women and children impacted by family and domestic violence.
If you or someone you know may be in need of assistance, or if you would like to find out how you can help, please contact Orana House on (08) 9370 4544 or visit orana.net.au.
