Our Empowerment Hubs

SisterWorks Empowerment Hubs

SisterWorks Empowerment Hubs offer a safe, friendly and nurturing space for migrant, refugee and asylum-seeker women (our Sisters) to learn, meet and grow.

We provide a range of vocational training programs, life skills classes and employment opportunities through our hubs. All of which are designed for Sisters' varying degrees of knowledge and language capabilities. They are also places that help prevent isolation as Sisters get to connect with others who have similar experiences to them.

  • Abbotsford

  • Bendigo

  • Dandenong

Life Skills Courses

We offer a range of life skills courses across each of our hubs, that help Sisters connect and practice their English in a safe and nurturing space.

Mobile Hubs

SisterWorks Mobile Hubs provide training workshops and classes for migrant, refugee and asylum seeking women (Sisters) throughout regional and metropolitan Victoria.

Mobile Hubs provide opportunities for Sisters in areas where access to services is limited. These workshops and classes build and enhance Sisters economic self-sufficiency through education, employment and entrepreneurship opportunities.

Workshops include one-off classes such as craft and jewellery making. These classes increase skills, build confidence and social connections while practising conversational English.

The Mobile Hubs are co-designed with the target cohort (CALD women) and local partner organisations to ensure the services offered in the specific location suit the needs of the cohort.

  • Geelong
