STREET OUTREACH PROJECT

Covid 19 had a huge impact on our Street Outreach Project. Our SOP operates on the Gold Coast and due to the positive assistance of the Queensland government, homeless people were provided with accommodation which meant our services became redudant. We saw very few women if any on the streets.

The Street Outreach normally operates on the Gold Coast and is aimed at supporting the most vulnerable women living on the streets. Statistically we know there are a large population of women who fall under the banner of “homeless”, but sadly we do not see these women on the streets.

There are so many reasons for this:

  • Fear
  • Embarrassment
  • They may be couch surfing
  • They may be in a domestic situation
  • They may simply not know where to go

We work alongside Orange Sky Laundry, at some of their locations. It is so important to be able to collaborate with other organisations that facilitate an incredible service assisting our most vulnerable community members.

Our Projects

RURAL INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY PROJECT

Support The Girls Australia is proud to be able to support our remote indigenous communities and our First Nation women and girls. Sadly some of the remotest regions do not have access to basic items, hair brushes, toiletries, menstrual products and shoes? So, we ensure that they are professionally fitted with bras, have underwear and access to these items. We provide ongoing support to the women of Cherbourg.

In December 2019 we had the privilege of working alongside the Australian Air Force supplying bras, underwear, menstrual hygiene products and flip flops to four of the remotest communities in Australia. The items were all airdropped in the first official Operation Airdrop. This was repeated on a smaller scale due to COVID-19 in 2020.

It is vital to ensure that all women and girls across our nation have access to every day products that we take for granted. Our commitment is to reach as many communities as we can dependent on funding to create this change.

RURAL FARMING COMMUNITY PROJECT

Support The Girls Australia is well aware of the need to ensure women and girls in our remotest locations have access to the basic essentials. Sadly a lot of women and girls in these remote communities go without the basics like hair brushes, toiletries, menstrual products and shoes. It is vital to ensure that all women and girls across our nation have access to these items. Our commitment is to reach as many communities as we can dependent on funding.

The hardship they have had to endure for the last four to five years due to the drought is untenable. Being able to afford items like menstrual hygiene products and toiletries is tough and the thought of being able to purchase bras or underwear is totally out of their reach. On one of our Outreach trips, we were made aware of some of the women getting “boiled” underwear from their local op shops. This is not what our farming communities should have to endure. So we take our Outreach Van to farming locations and help women on their farms or within their communities. We have been to numerous locations so far. Texas, Qld, Yeoval, NSW and Bathurst, and have done a couple of trips to Central Queensland where we have supported the women of Monto, Munduberra, Gayndah and Eisdvold. Covid-19 has seen many of these communities lose business’s and face enormous financial challenges.

SUPPORT SERVICE PROVIDER OUTREACH PROJECT

This is an area of the charity that we are going to grow in 2021. There are wonderful services that offer great support for women and collaborating with them is the key to helping more women and girls with their dignity and wellbeing. Collaboration means their clients get the best of both worlds.

We currently support some excellent services across QLD and NSW. Some of them are:

  • Kalwun Health Services
  • Access Community Services
  • YHES House
  • Baabyan Aboriginal Centre
  • Cranbrook Young Mums
  • Penrith Women’s Health Centre
  • Bonnies Suppor Services
  • Cranbrook Neighbourhood Centre
  • Wayback
  • Vincentia House
  • Lou’s Place

There are just a few that we support with Bra Gifting Events at their location. It is a positive way to engage with services in the sector but also add value to what they bring to their clients. The success stories of connection and empowerment speak for themselves.
