Macleod Accommodation Support Service Inc

Macleod Domestic Violence Refuge for Women & Children


100% of your donation goes to directly to supporting the women and children of Macleod.  

Women and children often arrive at our refuge with little to no belongings, limited or no money and have experienced significant trauma. 

What does your donation go to?

  • An initial food shop for the women and children who arrive at the refuge, this ensures there is enough food for the first few days to allow time to settle into refuge. 
  • Clothing, most women and children arrive with little to no belongings, we supply new undergarments and culturally appropriate garments for our clients
  • School uniforms and supplies
  • Nappies and baby formula 
  • Ongoing assistance for women with no income who need extensive support
  • Refuge homewares, all the items that turn our refuge into a beautiful and safe environment
  • Child support activities and outings
  • Medical, legal and translator support 
  • Transportation and relocation costs
  • Pet supplies- we are pet friendly! 

Providing the above creates an empowered and dignified space for women and thier children while they heal and begin their journey to live their life free of violence. 

We are an independent not for profit charity. Our staffing and administration costs are funded by the Queensland Government.  This ensure our refuge is staffed with highly qualified trauma counsellors and child support workers.  Macleod has Human Services Quality Framework Accreditation, which means we adhere to industry standards that ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients.
