Women’s Safety Services of Central Australia (WoSSCA) is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation that operates on a feminist framework and is committed to assisting and enabling women and children experiencing domestic, family and sexual violence.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land we work on, as the first people of this country. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and emerging.
We provide several services including:
24-hour crisis accommodation
urban and remote outreach services
partner support (Men’s Behaviour Change)
community development and training.
Our vision is for a Central Australia in which all women and children live with greater safety, respect and dignity, free from violence, in their chosen communities.
Women’s Safety Services of Central Australia (WoSSCA) seeks to prevent and respond to violence in Central Australia. We do this by providing safe accommodation and support services for women and children who have experienced domestic or family violence. We share our knowledge through community development, sector development, education and training.
Women’s Safety Services of Central Australia is a non-government organisation, based in Alice Springs, Central Australia.
WoSSCA receives funding from the Department of Social Services (DSS) for Emergency Relief Funding (ERF).
In addition to this funding, we depend on contributions from volunteers and donations.
