Women’s and Girls’ Emergency Centre (WAGEC) is a feminist, grassroots organisation that supports women and families in crisis and advocates for social change in the community. We are based in Redfern, Sydney and work on the lands of the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation. Every night, we support 200 women and children impacted by homelessness, domestic violence and social disadvantage. We do this by providing material aid, case management, biopsychosocial support, accommodation, and crisis responses. Equally we seek to address the underlying causes of gender-based violence through primary prevention activities with communities and private and public entities that want to be a part of the global movement to end gender-based violence in a generation.

Funds raised will help deliver WAGEC's SEED Program was designed to meet the Social, Emotional, Educational and Developmental needs of children and young people and their carers who have experienced trauma or violence. SEED provides enriching activities that address the impact of adverse childhood experiences. By combatting the effects of trauma, we are helping kids reach their full potential and giving them the tools they need to encourage a positive and safe life trajectory.
SEED Program interventions include: parenting support, education, individual and family therapeutic intervention delivered by an in-house clinical psychologist, and a school holiday program.
