We are pleased to announce that we have formed a crime prevention partnership with Crime Stoppers.
For more than 50 years, Wynstan has been dedicated to providing households with high-quality security door and window screen solutions as well as blinds, shutters and awnings.
Wynstan started off in 1968 supplying security doors and safes, so it’s really been the cornerstone of our business. Crime Stoppers is Australia’s most trusted information receiving service for people wanting to share what they know about unsolved crimes and/or suspicious activity. As home security is of paramount importance to Wynstan, we’re thrilled to be partnering with such an esteemed community policing resource.
People can provide information, in complete confidence, about unsolved crimes, people wanted by Police, crimes being planned or suspicious or unusual activity.
An independently prepared Community Impact Report shows 82 per cent of all Australians feel safer knowing Crime Stoppers exists. The research also found that 81 per cent of Australians believe the option to not say who they are when contacting Crime Stoppers is a significant motivator.
In 2019, Crime Stoppers programs across Australia received 300,000+ contacts via the hotline, website and other means, resulting in 155,240 information reports being provided to police. The information directly led to 5,215 apprehensions and 18,686 charges being laid.
Crime Stoppers helps solve a crime every 14 minutes somewhere in the world, and here they are contacted every 100 seconds and make 22 arrests on average every day in Australia.
As a family-run business, Wynstan has a passion for personalised service and tailor-made solutions. Its expert consultants are always ready to help customers make the right choices when it comes to style and functionality in their home.
If you need to make a report, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or nsw.crimestoppers.com.au
Ovarian Cancer Australia
With ovarian cancer being the eighth most common cancer in Australia claiming more than 1,500 women’s lives a year,
Ovarian Cancer Australia (OCA) is a charity that is extremely important.
The cause is one close to the heart of the family run and founded business. Wynstan matriarch Margaret Turner, wife to CEO & Founder Bruce, passed away from ovarian cancer in 1994 after a brave battle leaving her husband and three children devastated.
We partner with OCA to increase awareness of this illness and to support a charity that offers financial assistance to women suffering with ovarian cancer, as well as continue research for the disease. Our sole aim is to help change, so that others don’t have to share the same fate as the Wynstan family.
Unfortunately, there are no early detection tests for ovarian cancer, so all women need to be aware of the symptoms.
These can include unexplained fatigue, unexplained weight gain or loss, changes in bowel habits, bloating, abdominal pain and persistent feeling of fullness.
As a family-run business since 1968, Wynstan today employs over 450 staff and contractors. Its traditions and values have helped create a special culture – a unique blend of passion, creativity and taking pride in a job well done.
If you experience any of the following symptoms for longer than three weeks, please contact the OCA hotline on 1300 660 334. Always listen to what your body is saying and trust your instincts.
