Current Annual and Financial Report
The 2019-20 YWCA Annual Report and Financial Statements are now available for download! A snippet from our President’s message:
Like all organisations around Australia, 2020 has brought its challenges as we have grappled with the economic and social impacts of the bushfires, floods, and the COVID-19 pandemic. We have taken and will continue to take necessary measures to ensure the long-term impact and sustainability of our organisation.
Yet despite the challenges of the pandemic, our teams around the country have continued to deliver critical community programs and services. Our teams have continued to deliver essential face to face client services for the most vulnerable as well as transforming many of our existing programs and services into remote, telephone-based or virtual delivery models that ensure our clients, customers and tenants continue to receive the support they need. As we all know, women have been the hardest hit during the pandemic, and it is critical that our work continues to support the safety of our clients, customers and tenants.
Some of our new programs and initiatives are highlighted in this report. I am exceedingly proud of the continued good work of our team, from publication of significant research reports and investment in new housing developments, to the establishment of new traineeships and mentoring programs for young women and the launch of our CBF online advocacy initiative.
