Champion of Change Amanda Oliver

October 2015

Amanda Oliver is exasperated that women, who leave a violent home, often to protect their children, end up with nowhere to go. It’s one of the reasons she threw her support behind McAuley Care. A mother of teenage twin girls and her work in early childhood, has made her aware of the trauma faced by families who live with violence. Subsequent media coverage and a deep understanding of the service provided at the safe house have galvanized her commitment to support women who face family violence. Amanda played a major role in the TwentyFour/7 Cocktail Party and most recently, Amanda has been helping to source furniture and furnishings for our latest house.
