Essentials 4 Women SA
What does this organisation do?
For disadvantaged women, Essentials 4 Women SA aim to provide practical support to women who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
To date our focus has been on the supply of free feminine hygiene including sanitary products and underwear.
Our passion for helping women promises to help empower and enhance the wellbeing and dignity for some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
We are proud to be partnering with the Australian Dental Association Foundation to provide free dental care to women across SA.
People with a disability or chronic health issue
Living with a disability or long term or chronic health issue can severely affect our wellbeing through unemployment or underemployment, social isolation or exclusion and poor mental or physical health.
People affected by domestic or family violence or abuse
We all expect to be treated with respect and fairness by our partners and in our families. Yet domestic violence is the leading contributor to death, disability and ill-health in Australian women aged 15-44. Children exposed to domestic or family violence are at increased risk of mental health, behavioural and learning difficulties.
