To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of undersigned citizens respectfully showeth that:

We the undersigned wish to express our dissatisfaction at the closure of the Dandenong Young Women's Centre, due to the unlikelihood of refunding through the Community Employment Program.

The Centre has provided services which have previously not been available for young women.

A service such as this should not be subjected to ad hoc funding.

We urge the government to commit adequate and secure funds to all valuable women's services in an effort to enhance the status of women in general.

We request that the government give urgent consideration to the plight of the Young Women's Resource Centre.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
