Established as not for profit organisation in 2019, and opening our doors on Christmas Eve in 2019, Parramatta Women's Shelter is a community led shelter that has assisted over 250 women and children escaping domestic and family violence and homelessness.
Supporting new beginnings for women and children who need a safe place to stay.
A future free from domestic and family violence, gender-based discrimination and homelessness.
As a specialist service, we are committed to our clients, and to supporting change in their lives through a case management model, delivered by skilled staff. We are accountable to the families we support through the outcomes of our work, and are accountable to our community.
We are generous and considerate, client centred and trauma informed. We understand the needs of others and walk together, alongside our clients towards reaching their goals.
We recognise that the injustice and violence experienced by our clients is the result of inequity, often including gender-based discrimination.
Our clients are our inspiration, particularly in their resilience and the change that our work supports in their lives. We work together to inspire change in our community.
We are supportive of our clients, staff, volunteers and community and celebrate their dignity and value.
Parramatta Women's Shelter acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land we serve on, the Dharug people: this always was, and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
In acknowledging Country, we commit ourselves to justice, particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women experiencing family violence.
