Women's Health In the North

Women’s Health in the North (WHIN)

$

WHIN is dedicated to achieving gender equality for women living, working and studying in the northern metropolitan region of Melbourne.

WHIN is a proudly feminist organisation that works hard to ensure that women in the north:

  • Live free from violence
  • Have economic equality
  • Have control of their own bodies
  • Can advocate for their own rights

As the lead women’s health, safety and wellbeing organisation for the region, we work across multiple levels – from government, family violence response services, the police and schools, to hospitals, community health organisations, and local women’s groups - to build their capacity to change women’s lives for the better. 

We do this through:

  • Providing leadership and expertise
  • Developing strategic regional partnerships to ensure we are all working together
  • Delivering gender equity, prevention of violence against women and responding to family violence training
  • Developing resources for sector-wide use
  • Capturing women’s voices and experiences to achieve greater understanding and impact.

 Some of our key initiatives are:

Building a Respectful Community: WHIN leads this strategy to prevent violence against women, in partnership with 25 organisations, across the region.

Northern Integrated Family Violence Services: We integrate and coordinate family violence services across the region.

Going South in the North: We lead the strategy in responding to the key sexual and reproductive health issues affecting women in Melbourne’s north.

Let’s Talk Money: A bilingual financial capacity building program for refugee and immigrant women.
