We are delighted to have Jonty Bush as our patron. This inspirational young woman, whose sister was murdered in an act of domestic violence and whose father was also the victims’ of an act of homicide, was named Young Australian of the Year in 2009 for her work with the Queensland Homicide Victim Support Group and her role in developing and promoting the One Punch Can Kill anti-violence campaign. For several years, Jonty was the CEO of the Queensland Homicide Victim Support Group.
“I am thrilled to support the work of the Zephyr Education. Domestic and family violence is an epidemic in Australia; and amidst the national conversations about ‘what must be done’ the waiting list on refuges for women grows.
Zephyr Education provides an immediate and practical response to children who’ve fled their home often with nothing but the clothes on their back. Domestic violence has an INCREDIBLE impact on children, to be able to restore some normality and respect during a time of crisis is a beautiful thing”
