New Year - New Look! The WASH House’s New Look Website

Welcome to our new website!

Over the past 35 years, it’s amazing how far we have come as an organisation. We have evolved greatly and pride ourselves on being responsive to the needs of the women in our community, and had envisaged that our website would do the same for a long time coming. And here we are!

We’ve wanted to put our digital best foot forward and let’s face it; our old website looked tired, lacked inspiration and didn’t really capture everything that is great about the WASH House.

When you explore our new website, we hope that you get to experience the WASH House the way all our clients, partners, supporters and workers experience the WASH House every day.

The WASH House new website reflects who we are.  We are strong. We are resilient. We are unique and we are proud to represent the women in the Blacktown LGA.

What can you expect from our new website?

  • You can look forward to regular content to keep you updated about important issues affecting women here and across the world.

  • You will be able to use our site as a helpful resource wanting to find out about our services or if you are studying or conducting research into community services, feminism, women’s issues and much more.

  • You can subscribe to our mailing list and download our newsletter the WASH Cycle which comes out every term.

  • You can follow and support our advocacy and fundraising campaigns at the click of a button.

  • Most importantly, you can have your say. Our website, like our office, is for all women and we really do want to hear from you. If you have an idea for a story, a project or a group, would like to learn more about our services, or want to give us feedback; this is the place to do it.

Did you know?

The WASH House colours are purple, green and white for a reason.

Historically, these three colours have represented the suffragette and feminist movements: the women who have gone before us in the fight for gender equality and rights for women.

In fact, when women in countries such as England, America, New Zealand and Australia were not allowed to vote, they would often signal to one another that they supported the suffragette movement by wearing jewellery, hat pins or badges with the three colours.

White stood for ‘women’, green stood for ‘get’ and purple (or violet) stood for ‘vote’- Women Get the Vote!

We are proud to carry on this tradition as we strive for equal rights, respect and social justice for all women and girls.
