YWCA Australia has an asset base of over $60M and employs more than 250 staff in 15 locations across Australia.

The YWCA movement in Australia has a proud 160 year history and a strong legacy of serving the needs of women. In June 2018, the YWCAs in Australia completed an historic national merger via Scheme of Arrangement, bringing together nine YWCA organisations in Australia to become a single national organisation. The aim of the merger was to simplify our structure, create a platform for us to leverage our strengths and improve our efficiency and effectiveness as an organisation. Through achieving greater scale, we seek to ensure the future sustainability and growth of the YWCA movement in Australia. The transition is now well-underway and a CEO and Executive Team have been appointed to lead the integration work and our teams across the country.
