Our 2016 AGM supports the prevention of domestic violence

- May 27, 2016

We would like to thank everyone that attended our AGM held on .

Special thanks to our guest speaker, White Ribbon Campaign Ambassador Dominic Leaver. Dominic spoke of the important work being done to end the tragic incidence of violence against women, and the critical need to proactively teach children - especially boys - to respect girls and women early in life.

He gave an inspiring account of educational programs he has been involved with in South West Sydney that successfully engage boys in a discussion about respect for women and girls in fun and effective ways.

As The Infants' Home is an organisation that assists families experiencing domestic violence, and 'respect' is a core element of our educational programs, it was both sobering and encouraging to hear of the work being done to address this issue.

Dominic's speech was followed in traditional style by our annual staff awards presentation to celebrate achievements and years of service. The event ended with a delicious afternoon tea where we enjoyed mingling and chatting.
