Message to the WAGEC Community  


To our amazing community of supporters,


In view of the constantly changing landscape and the increasing pressures everyone is feeling, we have made the decision to put our virtual Walk for Women's and Girls' Emergency Centre permanently on hold.


Our priority is the health and mental well-being of everyone in our network, our supporters, volunteers, staff and of course our clients and the communities in which we operate.


We will continue to focus on delivering essential services for women and families, when and however we can.


We will continue to update you, reach out and find ways of connecting us as a community.


THANK YOU to everyone who has, and continues to support our work. We cannot do what we do without you <3 


Stay safe, stay in contact and please nurture yourself and your loved ones during this time.


Our deepest love and respect to you all, 

Helen and the WAGEC Team

Women's and Girls' Emergency Centre

Since 1977 Women's and Girls' Emergency Centre (WAGEC) has been providing safe spaces for women and families impacted by the effects of domestic and family violence, homelessness and systemic disadvantage. We create enduring change in times of crisis through access to safety, housing and support.

WAGEC provides critically needed services in our community including: crisis refuges, medium term supported accommodation, after-hours domestic violence service,case management support, programs for children and young people, pathways to training, education and employment, and programs that support and nurture recovery from trauma.

We work with communities to bring about positive social change and believe this is possible through the power of partnership and collaboration.

Each night we accommodate 200 women and children.

Generosity from individuals and groups in our communities allows us to deliver services to our clients that help them to create a future that is truly safe and free from violence.

*And when we say 'women,' we mean all womankind (and their children) - including women of diverse gender and sexualities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, women of colour, and women of all ages and abilities.
