Community Initiatives & Events
We are always looking at ways in which we can engage our community and provide meaningful ways in which they can learn, support and give back.
Geelong Giving Tree Appeal
On Saturday 12 November, the Geelong Giving Tree Appeal launches. Can you help fundraise or donate to support someone in our local community who is currently going through hardships? Click below to donate and learn more.
16 Days of Activism
During the 16 Days of Activism, people around the world will unite to raise awareness about gender-based violence, challenge discriminatory attitudes and call for improved laws and services to end violence against women for good.
Bethany Little Things Appeal
With the rising costs of living, many families are unable to afford many of the little things in life that we take for granted. Our annual June appeal raises funds to help buy these little experiences for local families.
Geelong Candlight Vigil
In May each year, together with Safe Steps Victoria and The Sexual Assault and Family Violence Centre, Geelong’s city centre turns purple, as we light a candle to remember women who have died due to family violence.
Surf Coast Century
This September, we’re working with the Surf Coast Century to raise vital funds to end family violence. And, with your help, together we can change the story. Can you make your run count?
