We are the voice for women’s health and wellbeing in the ACT. Our local research, evidence and data (informed by women for women) is used by decision makers to be more responsive to the needs of women and to improve the health and wellbeing of women in the ACT.
Our core work is evidence-based social research, policy development, advocacy and health promotion. We identify current and emerging health and wellbeing issues impacting all women in the ACT and surrounding region and develop evidence-based solutions to close the gaps.

You’ve probably heard the rumours, but now it’s really happening!
Our survey is out and ready! The survey can be accessed here.
Help us make women’s health needs visible! We’re looking for women from all different backgrounds and would love to hear what you have to say about sexual and reproductive health, access to services, experiences with health professionals and more.
You’ll also go into the draw to win a prize if you complete the survey – one of two $100 gift vouchers!

Raising Respect is a project to help equip parents and carers when talking to their children and others about respect, gender equality and inclusion.
The aim of the project is to help create environments where we can all work together to prevent gender-based violence. To do this, Raising Respect will run information sessions for groups of parents and carers to learn together about respect, gender equality and inclusion.
What’s happening now?
- Raising Respect will run information sessions for groups of parents and carers to learn together about respect, gender equality and inclusion. These can be online or in-person, in small or larger groups, depending on what people prefer.
- Send us an email at email@example.com to register your interest in the information sessions, which are tentatively planned for Term 1, 2023. Raising Respect is also open to holding sessions earlier if there is a lot of interest.
If you have any questions or would like to talk further about the project, please contact Merri via firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (02) 6290 2164
Welcome to our TACT podcast.
Having ‘tact’ means showing skill and sensitivity in dealing with others or with difficult issues.
We’ll be working together with a local podcaster, Jen Seyderhelm, to produce the podcast which will answer questions about health, sexual health and relationships.
Check out our Behind the Scenes series to see who is working on the podcast!
