YWCA of Darwin

Empowered individuals, women and families in a safe and inclusive community

We share the aim of the World YWCA, to use women’s leadership to deliver safe and sustainable services and promote justice, peace, health, human dignity, freedom and care for the environment.

Initially set up in 1969 to provide safe accommodation for women, the YWCA of Darwin has expanded to provide a diverse range of programs that address the needs of different groups in the community.

Our programs include youth housing (ranging from crisis accommodation to medium and long-term housing), youth diversion, mentoring, a domestic and family violence centre, parenting and the YWCA Encore after breast cancer program.
