Vale Fiona Richardson MP

Grampians Community Health is saddened after learning of the death yesterday of the Hon. Fiona Richardson MP.

Fiona Richardson was the Minister for Women and Family Violence in the current Victorian Labor Government and was a strong advocate of the services that Grampians Community Health (GCH) provided to people in our community.

Grampians Community Health Manager of Direct Care Programs Ms Kath Heading said that GCH were privileged to have hosted Fiona Richardson when she visited Grampians Community Health in August 2016 to tour our community health services in Stawell and to meet with the Homelessness and Family Violence Team.

“Her compassion and her commitment to addressing family violence and gender inequality across the Wimmera and Grampians regions was strongly evident. Grampians Community Health offers our heartfelt condolences to her family, friends and colleagues” said Ms Heading.
