About WIRE

WIRE is the only state-wide, free information and referral service for women, nonbinary and gender-diverse people in Victoria. Operating since 1984, it is one of the oldest and most established feminist services in Victoria.

The support and contributions WIRE receives from the community enables us to achieve great things.

Many of the people who contact WIRE have experienced family violence, social isolation, economic insecurity and homelessness. WIRE’s feminist service delivery framework allows service users to get the support they need in a way that uplifts and affirms strength.

We provide support, information and referral on any issue. If it's important to women, nonbinary and gender diverse people, it's important to us! We don't try to make our service users fit into rigid eligibility criteria because we know people's problems don't fit always into a neat box.

Your donation today will empower more people to change their lives for a better tomorrow.

WIRE provides several vital services to Victorian women, nonbinary and gender diverse people including:

  • A confidential phone support line and Walk-In Information Centre
  • Free computer classes for people returning to work and those that wish to use the internet as a social tool
  • Financial guidance and legal separation clinics
  • Workshops and seminars on topics such as money management, financial abuse and family violence
  • Accredited professional training

Have you thought about becoming a regular donor?

One of the best ways to support WIRE is to become a monthly donor. Start with as little as $10 a month — less than a coffee a week!  It takes two minutes and it is an easy and convenient way to manage your donation.

All donations above $2.00 are tax deductible (minimum donation on GiveNow is $5).
