Women's Health Donor Circle started for health centre

A group of local women has established a Women's Health Donor Circle to support the Central Coast Community Women's Health Centre, which operates the women's health centre in McMasters Rd, Woy Woy.

One of the founders, Ms Sally Jope of Umina said: "Women's Health Centre's across NSW have not had an adequate increase in funding since the 1980s.

"The Women's Health Donor Circle aims to fund out of our own pockets to increase our capacity and do the work that is needed.

"It is also all about engaging with women and having conversations about women's health and wellbeing."

The Donor Circle aims to increase the centres' capacity for counselling, therapeutic and health education groups and the capacity of the women's health GP clinic.

It also aimed to provide additional case management support to women who have experienced sexual violence and or intimate partner violence.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has also become a foundation member of the Women's Health Donor Circle.

"In the absence of the Perrottet Government taking women's health seriously, I have stepped up to the plate to deliver for our community.

"However at the end of the day, while I am so grateful for people like Sally Jope and the other founders of the Donor Circle, it is absolutely shameful that this NSW Liberal Government has not invested in the health of women."

The next Donor Circle event is planned for Wednesday, July 20, from 5pm to 7pm.
