women's and girls' emergency centre

Women’s and Girls’ Emergency Centre (WAGEC) is a feminist, grassroots organisation that supports women and children in crisis.

Every night, WAGEC supports 200 women and children impacted by homelessness, domestic violence and systemic disadvantage. We do this by providing material aid, case management, wrap-around support, accommodation and crisis responses.

Equally, we seek to stop violence against women and children before it starts, by addressing the causes of gender-based violence through advocacy, education and training. 

Our vision is to create safe futures for women and families by ending gender-based violence in a generation.

We are based in Redfern, Sydney and work on the lands of the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation.
