Our Mission

WomenCAN Australia’s mission is to make the world a little better and fairer by assisting women to access free vocational  training and job placements.  Our women then have the financial independence to make their life decisions. 

We walk alongside them, step-by-step, with our unique, evidence-based peer-support program; The Placement Circle. 

Everyone involved benefits; there can be no prosperous high streets without healthy backstreets. 

Disadvantaged women get quality work and financial freedom. 

Employers get dedicated, reliable, and skilled staff. 

Women needing trades work done get quality, affordable trades work done through our social enterprise. 

The economy and communities get stronger.  

WCA’s connection to communities means we see what’s happening early, and so are well-placed to help Australia’s women help fix Australia’s skills shortage. 

Sometimes massive, systemic change delivers justice.

But most of the time, it’s grassroots, incremental change that makes the world just a little bit better and fairer. Case by case, woman by woman.

Early Years Training Program has launched in Shepparton

Women from diverse communities can now benefit from WomenCAN Australia’s proven peer-led support program and be paid to train on-the-job in childcare or kindergarten.
