The Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing is calling for nominations for three elected board member vacancies and the opportunity for co-opted board members.

About the role

The Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing (CWSW) is the peak representative body for ​specialist women’s domestic and family violence, and community-based sexual assault and women’s health services in Western Australia. Our purpose is to amplify the collective voice to ensure women have the right to equal access, and outcomes for safety, health and wellbeing.

Our Board ​is comprised of representatives from the domestic and family violence, women’s health and sexual violence sectors.

With the initial two-year elected term ending for some of our current Board members, we have 3 elected board member vacancies. There is also the opportunity for additional co-opted board members. More information about elected and co-opted board members can be found in the CWSW constitution.

We are especially interested in hearing from women who:

  • Identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and/or culturally and linguistically diverse
  • Live and work in regional areas
  • Have experience working with diversity and inclusion principles to inform sector development and service delivery
  • Have accounting/financial management experience

Students and volunteers

If you are seeking a student placement, work experience, internship or volunteer opportunity it is important to be aware that CWSW is not a direct service provider for domestic, family and sexual violence and women’s health services. Our role as a peak body focuses on sector support and development, and systemic advocacy. 

A student or volunteer opportunity with us depends on a variety of factors including your area of interest or study, and our capacity to support and facilitate an opportunity, which can vary throughout the year. 

If you are interested and have a request for a student or volunteer opportunity, please email admin@cwsw.org.au and we will endeavor to get back to you as soon as possible.
