SisterWorks is a not-for-profit social enterprise.
SisterWorks supports women who are migrants, asylum seekers or refugees to become financially independent and happily settled in Australia. The women that SisterWorks works with are the most vulnerable migrants. They have been marginalised due to a lack of identity, language barriers, lack of western culture knowledge, poor employment skills and being the carers of their families. They face long-term unemployment which exacerbates social issues. With on-going support, this vulnerability can be lifted and not become a lifetime issue. We believe that Work Empowers Women and our aim is to support as many women as possible to move into work.
