Celebrating 90 years in Canberra

YWCA Canberra is a feminist not-for-profit organisation that has provided community services and has represented women’s issues in Canberra since 1929. 2019 saw us celebrate ninety years of providing essential, quality services for women, girls and families in the ACT and surrounding regions. Our history is bound to the history of Canberra shaping itself in response to changing local, and societal contexts. See our achievements and share your story.
