Friends with Dignity has been recognised for Outstanding Achievement in The Australian Charity Awards 2019. The Australian Charity Awards have been established to identify, recognise and reward organisations for the exceptional work undertaken through their charitable activities.
Manuela Whitford is the Friends With Dignity Chief Executive Officer and she believes it is an honour for the organisation to be recognised for Outstanding Achievement in The Australian Charity Awards 2019. “This amazing achievement not only highlights the dedication and drive volunteers have to make a difference to the lives of people affected by domestic and family violence, but how this epidemic affects society as a whole,” she said.
Friends with Dignity is a national not-for-profit organisation with a big vision focused on providing a platform for anyone to volunteer, and in turn change the perception and statistics of domestic and family violence throughout Australia. Chief Financial Officer, Julia McKenna said people have played a great role. “The practical support offered by the local community ensuring that families have no reason to return to a life of abuse and violence is equally overwhelming and humbling,” she said.
“This award will provide further exposure, recognition and acknowledgement for our innovative 100% charitable model, also providing increased awareness to the general public that want to help but don’t know how, we can provide them this opportunity.”
In celebration of this award, Friends With Dignity invites all supporters to attend A Magical Christmas Gala Charity Ball on Saturday, 16th of November, 2019 at the Southport Sharks Event Centre on the Gold Coast. “We are so excited and honoured for Friends With Dignity to be recognised for Outstanding Achievement in The Australian Charity Awards 2019 – we would love all of our supporters, volunteers and sponsors to celebrate with us at this very special event.”
