THE Bathurst Family Violence Awareness Group is the recipient of a $1000 NSW Government grant.

The grant is part of the 2016 Local Domestic and Family Violence Committee Grants, which supports projects that raise awareness about the issue.

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the local group was a deserving recipient and would be able to use the grant to assist it in its invaluable work.

“This grant helps raise local awareness about the devastating impact of domestic and family violence, reinforce messages about positive behaviours and increase awareness of services available in the local community,” he said.

The grant will assist the group in the production of a booklet that aims to educate women of all ages about domestic violence and abuse, in addition to pathways to help.

The Bathurst Local Area Charmed and Dangerous Booklet will be distributed throughout the community.

“I encourage all members of the local community to get involved in the activities of the Bathurst Family Violence Awareness Group and support their important work,” Mr Toole said.
