Welcome

Blue Mountains Women’s Health and Resource Centre was established in 1981 to provide health services to women in the Blue Mountains. Since then we have expanded to provide a wide range of health and support services, groups and activities.

The Centre is managed by a community-based management committee made up of women from the community who contribute their time on a voluntary basis.

We employ professional staff who provide a range of health and social services including free women’s health clinics, counselling, acupuncture, massage therapy, information and referral. We provide a wide range of women’s groups and run women’s key events throughout the year. We have a free library service and provide free child-minding for women who are accessing our services. Appointments are required for most services.

The service encourages low-income women, sole parents, women from Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Non-English speaking background, lesbians, women who are disabled or who have other special needs to use the Centre and its services.

The Centre is accessible and welcoming but let us know if you are having difficulty accessing our services.

Parking and entry is at the rear of the building.

Fees are charged for most services on a sliding scale basis. Speak to your practitioner if you are having trouble paying.

We welcome your feedback about our services and appreciate your ideas about where and how we can improve. You can also provide us with feedback on our Facebook page.

If you visit the Centre, we ask you to respect the rights and privacy of all women who visit or work at the Centre.

The Centre is a safe place for women. While men are welcome to attend appointments with their partner, we ask that men treat the service with respect and stay in the waiting room or other areas as requested.

We are funded by NSW Health and NSW Community Services. We are always looking for new projects and other sources of funding.

We advertise new activities, projects and positions in the Blue Mountains Gazette and on our website.

We welcome donations. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

BMWHRC acknowledges the Darug and Gundungurra people as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work.

BMWHRC supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart and acknowledges that sovereignty was never ceded, Always Was, Always Will Be Aboriginal Land.
