Social conditions of Queensland Women
We provide opportunities for volunteering, fundraising, campaigns and awareness of key social and political issues affecting the lives of women in Brisbane and Queensland. Our key project in this area for 2015, is the support of domestic violence charities in the region.
Our 2015 grants program provided $20,000 to the Women’s Legal Service to support the launch of their Our Safe State project, a domestic violence prevention program for rural and regional Queensland.
