The Challenge

In Australia, single women over 50 are the fastest growing group to experience homelessness due to financial vulnerability and lack of affordable housing. Barriers to mainstream employment and socio-economic inclusion are often due to disability, carer responsibilities and a lack of job opportunities - particularly in regional Australia.

Global Sisters supports women who are challenged to participate economically but are deeply motivated to be self-employed. Global Sisters business development support is long-term and equips women to launch and grow their own businesses. Being self-employed enables women to ‘stand tall’, creating a ripple effect of change in their families and communities.
