The Women's Helpline is the main point of contact for all Women's Care Centre (WCC) services. WCC provided gender-informed and trauma-informed support to more than 3,000 women in 2019 through the following services:
Helpline: Provides callers with emotional support, information and referral services.
Counselling: Professional counsellors help women with a wide range of issues, including martial issues, gender-based violence, discrimination, self-esteem and depression.
Legal Clinic: Qualified lawyers provide free one-time legal advice to women at legal clinics that take place twice a month.
Your generous contribution will help expand the Women's Helpline to better support more women from minority and marginalised groups in Singapore. It will enable us to increase the quality of helpline support through the hire of helpline executives and review of the helpline training programme. We will continue to train staff, volunteers and counsellors on trauma and related topics to better support women facing abuse and violence.
No woman should be turned away from the help they need.
About the Charity
The Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) is Singapore's leading gender equality advocacy organization. AWARE supports and empowers women on an individual basis and seeks to remove all gender-based barriers that prevent individuals in Singapore from developing their potential to the fullest and realizing their personal visions and hopes. It does this in three ways, namely, research and advocacy, education, and providing social services.
In 2016, AWARE won the Charity Governance Award 2016 for the Medium Charities/IPCs category.
The Charity Governance Awards, (CGA), organised by the Charity Council, aim to promote good governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excelling work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices.
AWARE qualified as a candidate for the CGA by becoming a winner of the Charity Transparency Awards (CTA). The CTA recognises charities with good disclosure practices.
