Champions of Change

McAuley Community Services for Women has initiated the Champions of Change program to recognise and celebrate the significant contributions that individuals are making as they raise awareness about family violence and homelessness and the effect on women and children.

The program is our way of supporting community campaigns and individuals working with and for us.

Our program is about recognising people who speak out at forums, hold awareness raising events, talk with politicians and the media in a bid to bring about social and cultural change through mobilising communities.

Each Champion of Change, whether working individually, or in a group, is creating a positive impact through their leadership.
