Worrells’ Liquidators find a new home for White Ribbon Australia

On 22 November 2019

The Liquidators of White Ribbon Australia are pleased to announce that the net assets of White Ribbon Australia have been acquired by Communicare Inc.

Communicare is a West Australian-based, for-purpose organisation that has provided family and domestic violence services for more than 20 years.

Worrells Solvency and Forensic Accountants partner Mr Aaron Lucan said: “It’s not often that a liquidator can work toward an outcome of benefit to the wider community as well as to creditors, so on a personal level this is a very pleasing result.

“Shortly after appointment we formed the view that White Ribbon Australia’s brand and commercialisation model were strong enough to self-fund its advocacy efforts, if the organisation formed part of a bigger, complementary enterprise.

“After an intensive five-week tender process involving 62 expressions of interest, we believe we’ve found such a partner in Communicare”.

Founded in 1977, Communicare Inc, operates from 29 locations in Western Australia with the help of 350 staff and volunteers delivering 27 programs.

Chief Executive Officer Melissa Perry said: “Communicare has more than 40 years’ front-lineexperience dealing with the consequences of family and domestic violence. We feel strongly positioned to complete, evolve and strengthen the complementary activities of White Ribbon Australia”.
