Who we are



SisterWorks is a not-for-profit that exists to help women migrants, asylum seekers and refugees become financially independent and happily settled in Australia.

The social enterprise currently supports 171 women from 55 countries, including 88 ‘Entrepreneurs’ – who create and sell their wares from our Richmond ‘Home’ – with the remaining Sisters supporting this effort behind the scenes.

Our Entrepreneurs also teach their skills to others through workshops and share their incredible stories through guest speaking opportunities.

We are funded through grants, generous donations, and a portion of the funds made through our activities.
