The WASH House envisages a community in which women exercise equal rights, choose their own destiny and have a safe environment for themselves and their family.
We work towards realising this vision for the women of Mt. Druitt and surrounding areas by providing information, community development, counselling, support services and group work. The WASH House is a service run by women for women.
