For nearly 50 years, WEL has been advocating for equality and justice for all women. We carry out important research and campaign to knock down the barriers that hold women back from a life of dignity, safety and independence.

Women Ageing Well
A home of her own. Securing housing for women at any age - social, rented or owned
As part of the Women Ageing Well campaign, WEL has partnered with internationally renowned human rights artist Belinda Mason of Blur Projects in a collaborative multi-media arts project UNSEEN. UNSEEN shares the hidden experiences of women’s homelessness, offering women who have or are experiencing homelessness an opportunity to collaborate with artists and advocates to generate greater public awareness of women’s homelessness.
During one week each month between March and December 2021, a mobile tiny house will be positioned on location in Sydney’s CBD.
WEL is proud of this significant partnership and invites members of the public, politicians and community leaders to engage in this project, promote it to their communities and to connect with the severity of the significance of women’s homelessness.

WEL thanks the City of Sydney for their support of UNSEEN, and the partner organisations who encourage women to
participate and advocate for this serious social issue.
WEL is proudly reformist and always ambitious. Through passion, determination and strategic thinking, we have won many significant policy changes and law reforms to make life better for women everywhere. We are not for profit, non party political and independent. We are able to continue our work and campaigns for equality thanks to the generosity of people like you, our members and supporters.
