The Women’s Centre is funded by the State government to provide a Sexual Assault Support Service in the Townsville area and an outreach service to Ayr, Ingham, Charters Towers and the Townsville Women's Correctional Centre. The Women's Centre also provides a Specialist Homelessness Service for women who are homeless or at risk of being homeless, and for women experiencing domestic violence, and a Women’s’ Health Service for the Townsville community. Our women's Health and Sexual Assault Services are funded by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women and our Specialist Homelessness Service is funded by the Department of Housing and Public Works.

In addition to this, the Women’s Centre receives Emergency Relief Funding from State and Federal Governments, thus assisting in the provision of crisis support for women and their children.
