Women’s Health Centres operate from a feminist framework. This means that we recognise the social, economic, environmental, physical, emotional, mental and cultural factors influencing a woman’s health and well-being.
Women’s Health Centres are not for profit community- based organisations run by women for women, committed to enhancing women’s power to decide their own health needs and to take action about them. We are also pro-choice and target our services to women who are socially and financially disadvantaged, women from a CALD / refugee background, Aboriginal women, women suffering mental illness, or experiencing the impacts of complex trauma from gender-based violence, women who live with disabilities and chronic illness, carers and gender diverse women.
As well as face to face appointments, BMWHRC offers internal and external referrals and a group program and community advocating for women’s wellbeing in the local community across a range of issues including family violence.
