Immigrant Women's Health Service


Immigrant Women's Health Service is committed to empowering women and valuing their life experiences. We work with compassion, unity and mutual respect. Immigrant Women's Health Service is funded by NSW Health Department via SWSLHD.

We Believe

  • Migrant women's voices and leadership must be amplified in all public and private spaces
  • Women deserve to participate equally in the decision-making process
  • Education and capacity development are the keys to up-skilling migrant women and their families
  • Working in partnership with other civil society organisations is a focal point


Certificate II in Business - Skill Set

IWHS believes in empowering women by developing their skills and abilities, so we will be offering a 9-week Certificate II in Business - Skill Set course. The program will start in mid-October and there will be child minding provided for women with children. 

Please call on 9726 4044 for further information and to register your interest.
