We’re the women supporting women in crisis

Crisis Assistance

WAGEC offers a range of crisis assistance services including both short and medium term accommodation, emergency assistance via our Central Support Office and specialised domestic and family violence support.

Short Term Accomodation

We provide short term accommodation for women and families across the inner city and inner west of Sydney, totalling 90 beds on any given night. 

Most of the women and children staying at these refuges have experienced domestic and family violence so we make sure that the properties are safe and secure.

Medium Term Accomodation

We provide over 45 transitional properties for families and a large ten-bed transitional property for single women. 

Our medium term supported accommodation offers women and families the stability of affordable housing before they move on to a more permanent home.

Emergency Assistance

Our Central Support Office in Redfern provides a personalised service to women and families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

When people first come to WAGEC, whether in person or by phone, we talk to them about their situation then refer them to the best services and programs for their needs.

Sometimes women and families come to us in immediate crisis and we can help them to find housing and other support right away.
