Find Your Voice Podcast: Kathy Kaplan OAM

Domestic and family violence has rightly been dubbed ‘Australia’s great shame’. Zoe Daniel MP breaks down the crisis with Kathy Kaplan OAM, Founder of IMPACT for Women who shares profound insights and details her incredible work in making a difference for Victorian women and children escaping extreme home violence.

IMPACT for Women is a completely volunteer-run charity in Goldstein. Starting as an ova of an idea in March 2006, Kathy and twenty of her friends sourced donations and, in a friend’s lounge room, packed 100 hampers which were then delivered to several metropolitan Safe Houses that support domestic violence victims. Last April nearly 500 volunteers packed almost 2000 Bags of Love.
