About Us

North Queensland Combined Women's Services (NQCWS), known as The Women's Centre is a women only space, run by women for women, which operates from a feminist philosophy.

The Women's Centre provides a FREE counselling service to all women who wish to access our services. Our counsellors are all tertiary qualified women.

Many women access the Centre for different reasons which can include; domestic violence, family violence, sexual assault, women's health, homelessness or the threat of homelessness, financial difficulties, becoming involved in activism, feminist interests, participating in groups and other centre events.

We actively promote the development of a socially just, inclusive and respectful society and will continue to forge creative, collaborative community partnerships to enhance the position of women.

We acknowledge the unique journey and current position of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and South Sea Islander women and work with them to challenge their ongoing barriers.
