Coast Shelter to run Peninsula refuges

Coast Shelter has won a tender to run all three homeless refuges on the Peninsula: Youth Angle in Umina, Woy Woy Women and Children's Refuge and Woy Woy Youth Refuge.

The tender gives Coast Shelter responsibility for the eight homeless refuges on the Central Coast including.

"Each of the three women's refuges on the Central Coast will continue as women only and women with accompanying children only refuges and will provide the same level of accommodation as was previously the case," said

Coast Shelter executive officer Mr Laurie Maher said the women's refuge would continue to operate as previously.

He said an advisory committee, comprised only of women with feminist principles, would ensure homeless women and victims of domestic violence were assisted in an empathic and professional manner.
