The Manly Women’s Shelter (MWS) is a non-profit organisation supporting homeless women on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. 

We provide a safe haven for women who – due to physical, emotional or sexual abuse, family breakdown, financial strife, domestic violence, mental health issues or lack of affordable housing – are homeless. We provide a case management approach to assist women to rebuild their lives by accessing permanent accommodation and community support systems.

Our goal is to help these women reclaim their lives and once again live in the community.

Based on the Northern Beaches, we depend entirely on community support.

Since we first opened our doors in 2010, more than 250 women have benefited from our services
