Aged Women

Aged Women is an exciting and innovative project using the internet as a way of promoting wellness to older women living in urban, rural and remote areas. 

Women International Network believes that the art of networking is finding and representing the commonalities we share, while at the same time affirming, valuing and giving voice to our differences as organisations and individuals within them.  It exists to safeguard the autonomy and rights of community women’s groups as centres of local democracy and agents of democratic debate.

Women International Network is not only accessible to its constituency but also directed by it. It seeks to encourage and advance the full participation of it’s membership and in particular those groups of women who are marginalised or unheard within our society.

Overcoming Barriers to Success

WIN provides professional case management services for women who need assistance to overcome personal obstacles to successful employment. Licensed case managers work individually with each woman to help her resolve barriers to her economic stability such as challenges with housing, domestic abuse, child care, transportation, health care, divorce, legal issues, etc.
