McAuley Community Services for Women provides much needed services for women and their children who are escaping family violence, and for women who are homeless.

Following in the footsteps of Catherine McAuley – foundress of the Sisters of Mercy – we offer welcoming crisis and longer term accommodation, vital employment services, social and recreational support and children's services.

Each year we help around 600 women and children to rebuild their lives, supporting them on their journey towards independence and safer futures.

September's News from McAuley is out now. Read about the organisation's efforts to improve services for women who are homeless because of family violence or mental illness and the people helping to bring about that change.
