Zig Zag Young Women's Resource Centre Inc

Zig Zag General Appeal

Zig Zag was established in 1988 to respond to the many unmet needs of young women, specifically in the area of sexual violence support and prevention, and homelessness prevention. Whilst Zig Zag receives recurrent funding for our programs from the Queensland Government, each year we face an increasing demand for specialist services with limited resources. The onset of a global pandemic in 2020 has once again highlighted the nature of structural inequality as COVID19 disproportionately impacted marginalised young women who experienced increased rates of violence, homelessness, and unemployment; and endured significant disruptions to their education, and loss of social connections and support. Please dig deep and generously to assist Zig Zag in our continued support of young women who are marginalised and most disadvantaged in our community.
