There is a variety of ways you can get involved and support the work we do for women in our community.
By making a donation, you can contribute to the important work that we do in promoting women’s health and wellbeing in our community.
FWHC is a not-for-profit incorporated association, has health promotion charity status and is a deductible gift recipient. This means that any donations you make to FWHC over $2 are tax deductible.
Although FWHC receives recurrent state government funding, this funding has not kept pace with the growth in demand for services. We generate income through support fees and some fees for service, but these have been kept to a minimum so as not to exclude women from accessing support and services.
Donations provide extra support for vital projects and services. In the last couple of years we have received donations that have enabled us to revamp our crèche facility and purchase outdoor play equipment. Having a crèche is vital for women with young children so that they can attend much needed appointments and join our support and parenting groups.
We will be introducing an online donations platform soon. In the meantime if you would like to support FWHC, please contact us.
For those that like to gift their time, we have volunteer opportunities to help with some activities such as:
- child minding in the crèche
- quarterly mail-outs
- grounds and building maintenance
- assisting at health education events
- running a group activity.
Volunteering provides opportunities for you to:
- share your skills and experience
- connect with others
- meet new people
- help and support others
- get involved in the community
- do something worthwhile in your spare time
- have fun.
We will provide you with the appropriate information, training and supervision to do the work required. To apply to be a volunteer please contact us and we will organise a time to meet with you to discuss how you can get involved.
FWHC ambassadors are volunteers and partners of the Centre who agree to work with us on specific, mutually agreed projects and who help to raise our profile in the local community. If this is of interest to you or if you know someone who may be interested, contact the Executive Director Adele Tan for more information.

FWHC Youth Ambassador
Meet Lucy Harris
I am extremely grateful and excited to have the opportunity to take on the FWHC youth ambassador role. I am currently in my third year of an anatomy and human biology undergraduate degree. I am particularly interested in the areas of nutrition and women’s health, with the hope of becoming a doctor or a nutritionist in the future.
In undertaking the youth ambassador role, I will be working with the FWHC team to complete projects aimed at promoting the centre to young women in the area. I strongly believe that the holistic, respectful and caring approach to health care that FWHC offers is what young women are looking for, and I hope to make more young women aware of these fantastic services.
