Lithgow Partnerships Against Domestic Violence and Family Abuse (LPADVFA) has been given a $1000 grant by the NSW Government.
Announced on Wednesday, the grant will go towards helping LPADVA with their 5th annual trivia night being held on Friday.
Proceeds from the event support White Ribbon and LPADVFA.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole welcomed the news and said the grant helps raise local awareness of the devastating impact of domestic violence.
“[This] reinforce messages about positive behaviours and increases awareness of services available in the local community,” Mr Toole said.
The funding is part of the 2016 Local Domestic and Family Violence Committee Grants which supports projects that raise awareness about domestic and family violence.
The project is being supported as part of local initiatives to coincide with 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, which commences with White Ribbon Day today, November 25 and runs until December 10.
“I encourage all members of the local community to get involved in the activities of the Lithgow Partnerships Against Domestic Violence and Family Abuse and support their important work,” Mr Toole said.
Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Pru Goward said the NSW Government was proud to promote the importance of domestic and family violence prevention in local communities.
