We are holding another goods drive this month!
Our recent collection of jumpers for NPY Women’s Council was super successful and we want to provide more support to women in our broader BWC community.
We are supporting A Brave Life, a past BWC Grant recipient, by collecting and donating goods that they use to fill a care bag for new young mums.
A BRAVE LIFE
A Brave Life is a registered not-for-profit charity that provides a person-centered, positive approach with achievable outcomes to meet the practical needs of young women from a physical, emotional and educational perspective. A Brave Life focuses on two areas:
- Walking alongside young women, whilst encouraging them to finish their education, pursue their dreams and to live life brave.
- Providing essential baby items to young women through a baby bundle program.
Check out their website at www.abravelife.com.au and their Facebook page @A Brave Life.
A Brave Life were awarded the BWC Grant for 2019 for their LIVE LIFE BRAVE MENTORING PROGRAM. BWC also supported A Brave Life with further donated funds from our Movie Charity Night “Ride Like A Girl” in 2019.

- Shampoo/Conditioner pack (300-500mls)

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP
We have a few different options for how you can help:

THE IMPACT YOUR DONATIONS MAKE
“We had a young mum-to-be turn up to the emergency department due to a domestic violence incident with nothing but the clothes she was wearing. It was so great to be able to gift a bag for mum and her baby, filled with the immediate essentials that they needed.” – Social Worker, Metro North Hospital
Enquiries are welcome – please send to Leah at email@example.com. Thanks for all your help BWC Community!
