Wardle Partners is proud to announce our support of Share the Dignity.
Share the Dignity is a not-for-profit organisation with the aim to provide homeless and at risk women nationally with sanitary and bladder products to allow these women a sense of dignity, at a time when they need it most.
On any given night in Australia 1 in 200 people are homeless. Approximately, 44% of all homeless people are women. (Reported by Homelessness Australia)
25% of homelessness in women is due to domestic and family violence.
The most common age group for homelessness is 25 to 34 years.
Family violence is the number one reason people present to homeless services, with 55% of females citing this reason.
Homeless women and women who have fled domestic violence are using newspaper or toilet paper as pads, as they often leave violent relationships with nothing and do not have money to spend on sanitary or bladder products.
Share the Dignity believes that sanitary items should be a right NOT a privilege, and that no woman should suffer the indignity of choosing between eating or buying sanitary items.
Share the Dignity is the driving force behind a number of community campaigns to donate and help give support to these women in need.
Wardle Partners will be supporting the following Share the Dignity campaigns:
April and August sanitary and bladder drives.
Donations of female sanitary and bladder products can be delivered to – 8 Otranto Ave, Caloundra. Our office is between Subway and the Council Chambers. If you are unable to donate in person, you may either arrange for an online grocery provider such as Coles or Woolworths to deliver products to our Practice during our office hours of 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday or visit the Share the Dignity Facebook page to search the list of other businesses around Australia who are collecting product on behalf of Share the Dignity.
