Bringa Women and Children’s Refuge has been operating on the Northern beaches for more than 45 years.

We provide crisis accommodation to women and children escaping domestic violence for up to three months while providing case management to address the complex needs of mothers and their children.

In 2015 Bringa Women and Children’s Refuge  was converted from the boarding house model of communal living into modern self-contained studio apartments.

The delightful conversion to Bringa Women and Children’s Refuge now provides women and children in crisis with their own self-contained studio apartment with their own bathroom and kitchen facilities.

This model of crisis accommodation is consistent with a trauma-informed approach to service delivery.

Our 40 year celebration was acknowledged by Jason Falinski, Member for Mackellar as seen in the video below.
