Media Release For Immediate Release 4th November 2022

Core Community Services is proud to announce CommBank as a silver sponsor of the SWSDVC’s Domestic & Family Violence Conference, to be held at the Holiday Inn, Warwick Farm on 23 November 2022.

This year’s conference is focused on trauma-informed practice, which aims to highlight effective systems and methods when working with victims subjected to domestic and family violence. Lead/Key industry speakers include Dr Susan Heward-Belle; Award winning journalist Jess Hill; Psychiatrist Dr Karen Williams; Jannawi Family Centre Director Biljana Milosevic; and Sector Development Manager at Domestic Violence NSW Sarah Judd, who will inspire, educate and motivate many frontline workers, advocates and associates in attendance.

The alignment between CORE Community Services and Commonwealth Bank is clear, with both organisations dedicated to preventing violence against women and children through their support and service offerings to victim-survivors of abuse.

“CommBank’s commitment to supporting those experiencing domestic and family violence has been industry-leading through its Next Chapter program which helps build financial independence for victim-survivors of financial abuse,” said Shama Pande, Service Manager, CORE Community Services, Multicultural Communities. “It made sense for us to collaborate with CommBank as they understand the many challenges faced by communities impacted by domestic and family violence.”

“CommBank is proud to sponsor SWSDVC’s Domestic & Family Violence Conference and enable many frontline workers and services to access crucial information about best practice, especially when it comes to financial abuse,” said Malini Raj, Head of Community Engagement, Commonwealth Bank. “Being a silver sponsor demonstrates our commitment to this important cause and we stand united as a community.”
