Broken Ballerina Foundation, which is an unincorporated association, was started in 2018 and we started off doing sausage sizzles etc and donating money, time and assistance to places such as the following:
Not only do we financially help, we provide a 24/7 service where victims of DV can make contact with us even if it's to cry down the phone and vent about their situation. Many women and men reach out to us via our Facebook page and Jules has recently started supporting some women at the Mackay courthouse for DV matters. We also have candle lighting vigils from time to time to pay our respects to victims murdered in acts of violence
This year we have started Broken Ballerina Inc. which is an Incorporated Association and Public Benevolent Institution and has DGR status. Broken Ballerina Inc will be the future of the Broken Ballerina organisation and the future of our unincorporated association is not known at this stage. Broken Ballerina Inc was formed with a committee of people who chose to support Jules and I in our mission of making a difference in the lives of victims of domestic violence and disadvantaged people in our society. We found we needed to be incorporated and have DGR status to be eligible to apply for grants and larger donations from governments and large and small businesses.
