We embrace a feminist philosophy. 

We validate women’s experiences, advocate for women and challenge injustices. 

We promote and enhance the health, well being and safety of all women.

We actively promote the development of a socially just, inclusive and respectful society.

We will continue to forge creative, collaborative community partnerships to enhance the position of women.

We demand a world of equality, without sexual violence and assault.


Our feminist framework is informed by empowerment and woman-centred practice, promoting health and wellbeing of all women.

We will:

  • Provide specialist services that are based on best-practice standards;
  • Enhance the safety of women and children by strengthening and valuing community partnerships;
  • Actively encourage and invite inclusion of diversity and incorporate this in our practices;
  • Acknowledge the unique journey and current position of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Australian South Seas Islander women and work with them to challenge their ongoing barriers; and
  • Strengthen women’s position in the community.
