The Women’s Crisis Support Service has provided shelter to women and their children for over 40 years. We offer Crisis Accommodation or support to help you stay safe in your own home.
We have been providing an escape from domestic and family violence since 1978. Our clients always have someone to talk to whether it is about something specific, or if they just need a chat with a cup of coffee in hand. Our Shelter is located in Ipswich and the address is kept confidential to keep our clients and staff safe. We run a number of programs with our clients and link them to a number of services that can help.
A shelter can provide safe emergency accommodation for women and children who are trying to escape violent or abusive situations. Shelters exist because workers believe that women have the right to live their live free of violence and fear. Our workers assist with Centrelink, schooling, legal and housing related matters.
