"The team at McAuley Care were so caring and supportive.
For the first time, in such a long time, we felt safe."
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.
