THE new Safe Woman Safe Family Murray Centre in Pinjarra will provide a much-needed range of programs and support to women in the Murray region.
The service is for women whose lives have been affected by family and domestic violence and abuse-related trauma.
The centre opens for business on Monday, April 29, but the community can take a look around at a community open day on Friday, April 26, from 11.30am to 3pm.
The Shire of Murray has provided the building with a free three-year lease and the option of another three years.
Co-founder and director Tanya Langford said about 25 volunteers would operate from the centre.
She also has big plans for a range of outbuildings where a women’s circle, arts and crafts, yoga and gardening workshops could be run.
The centre at 14 Camp Road, Pinjarra, will be open Mondays to Fridays, 9am to 4pm.
