Lived Experience Leadership

We recognise women with lived experience have unique insights to offer to government and service providers on the design of systems, policies and programs.

YWCA Australia provides local leadership programs where we support participants with lived experience to build their knowledge, skills and confidence, and then connect them with opportunities to share their expertise and make a difference in their communities.

Nationally, we offer leadership opportunities and a Lived Experience Network for young women and gender diverse people who are passionate about removing the barriers that stand in the way of women’s housing security and want to partner with us to drive long-term change.
