We have received funding from Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs to enhance the services we offer to women who were sexually abused as children. We have also received assistance from Hawkesbury City Council in supporting us to stay in this great cottage

Say No to Violence Campaign

The Womens Cottage SAY NO TO VIOLENCE Campaign was inspired by the Amnesty International’s global campaign to stop violence against women.

Say No is about raising awareness within the local community about violence against women & children. The campaign encourages local businesses and other organisations to take a stand against violence and help raise awareness by displaying an A4 poster (with their name on it ) that makes a statement against violence.

If you Say No to violence against women and children, become part of this campaign by downloading our information pack and/or ordering a poster.

To see examples of the poster click here

If you live in the Hawkesbury area you can order your own customised poster for your business or work place. Simply email the Womens Cottage with the name you want on the poster and let us know if you would like a hard copy or an electronic version.  Email us.
