About AWCCS

The Aboriginal Women & Children’s Crisis Service fundamentally believes in, values and respects the rights of Aboriginal women and children in relation to a life free of violence and oppression.

The Service receives funding from the Department of Family and Community Services to assist Aboriginal women and their dependent children escaping Domestic and/or Family Violence.

The Aboriginal Women & Children’s Crisis Service acknowledges the emotional, social, physical, and psychological effects of colonisation on Aboriginal people. It also recognises that the legacy of colonisation is not in the past and that it continues to impact in a myriad of ways on the lives of Aboriginal people, including their housing, health, mental health and wellbeing.

Our Mission

Our service provides a safe and supportive environment and a range of holistic services to Aboriginal women and children who have experienced Domestic and Family violence, and acknowledges the emotional, social, physical and psychological effects of violence on Aboriginal women.

Our Vision

Our service will continue to enhance the wellbeing of Aboriginal women and children.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work; and pay our respects to our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders both past and present.
