Country Women's Association Griffith Branch

Country Women's Association Griffith Branch

A network of support & friendship for women, who are also committed to improving conditions & welfare of families & providing a voice to government at all levels.

The CWA was formed in 1922 when country women were fighting isolation and a lack of health facilities. Within the first year, the Association was a unified, resourceful group that was going from strength to strength. The members worked tirelessly to set up baby health care centres, fund bush nurses, build and staff maternity wards, hospitals, schools, rest homes, seaside and mountain holiday cottages - and much more. The women of the CWA have been initiators, fighters and lobbyists. They have made localities into communities by providing social activities and educational, recreational and medical facilities.

Women in NSW and ACT can join a local branch and have a voice in the nation's affairs, socialise with others and assist the community.

The CWA is the largest women's organisation in Australia and aims to improve conditions for country women and children. We reach that aim in various ways including lobbying for change, helping the local community, creating a network of support and meeting together in towns and cities.
