The Dorothy Rose FundDorothy Rose Fund

The Dorothy Rose Fund is an initiative of Doncaster Community Care and Counselling Centre Inc. (Doncare).  It is a way for individuals and organisations to make a positive contribution to the recovery of women and children following domestic violence. The Dorothy Rose Fund aims to improve the quality of life for those in recovery, and by doing so to assist in restoring the self-esteem, mental health and confidence of those affected by family violence.

Many of these women are trying to regain their mental and/or physical health are also living in reduced financial circumstances. They often cannot afford services or goods that most families take for granted. This fund accepts both cash and donations in-kind from generous businesses and individuals. For example, recently a hairdressing salon donated six hair styling sessions for women and children. Other donations include vouchers for goods or services, or money to provide these.  

Donations can be received by Doncare at any time.

All donations over $2.00 are tax deductible. For more information on how to donate to Doncare, please click here.
