Our services are opening in 2024

Our Centre

The Women’s Trauma Recovery Centre, opening in 2024, is a place for women to heal and rebuild lives after experiencing domestic, family, and sexual violence. Through an innovative wrap-around approach, the Centre will support women to live independent and secure lives for the wellbeing of current and future generations.

Underpinned by research, the Women’s Trauma Recovery Centre is community-led and has been co-designed with women with lived experience, professional experts, and service providers.

The Women’s Trauma Recovery Centre is an initiative of the Illawarra Women’s Health Centre and has received $25 million in federal funding for its opening in 2024.
