McAuley Community Services for Women (McAuley) 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.

This Mother's Day, purchase a beautiful 'I Care' bracelet and help women and their children escaping family violence.
