Sexual Assault Centre

“With the support of the Top 20 Under 40 Alumni Foundation, our Girls Creating Change program has been able to support 38 young women in our community. These girls come from diverse backgrounds as young mums, having newcomer/refugee status, experiencing homelessness/poverty, mental health struggles, and involvement in the criminal justice system.

These groups have come together to form community, friendships and to make change through their unique ‘take action’ projects. Some of their projects include: creating care packages for new mums at Victoria Hospital with custom buttons and handmade nursing pads, filming a video on dress codes, and writing body positive messages for other young women at their community centre.”
