What We Do

YWCA Queensland provides direct services to address fundamental and ongoing living requirements, especially in safety and security matters. We also design and deliver a diverse range of programs to support women and girls through critical life transitions, when their risk of harm or ongoing disadvantage is heightened.

Drawing from our experience ‘on the ground’, we advocate on policy as it impacts women and girls. As a membership organisation, we create opportunities for women to help women, enabling professional and personal development and the opportunity to contribute to the community. We facilitate mentoring and other forms of volunteer engagement for YWCA Queensland members and supporters.
