Current Group Information
Updated 19th May 2022
WWILD Women’s Group
WWILD supports an ongoing Women’s Group in Wooloowin, which meets on Wednesday mornings.
The goal of this group is to provide a safe space for women who have experienced violence or abuse to meet new people, practice social skills, learn and teach new skills and knowledge, improve self-esteem, and have opportunities for success and being valued.
The group members make decisions on what they want to do, but generally there is a cooking group, a craft group, a pamper group and a discussion group once per month. We also attend and contribute to special events such as Reclaim the Night.

You and Me Relationships Group – Starting on Monday 6th June 2022
WWILD periodically runs time-limited relationship and sex education groups in collaboration with community organizations. These groups run for approximately 10 weeks, and are focused on building understanding and skills in relationships, which help in preventing sexual assault. These groups run at the pace and needs of the individual group members.
Unfortunately due to limited capacity we only run a couple of these groups a year, but we encourage organizations to get in touch if they are interested in running one of these groups. We also have developed a You and Me facilitator training workshop and accompanying manual. if anyone is interested in learning more about his please get in touch with WWILD.
The group meets for two hours over ten weeks to talk about:
• Meeting new people
• Being a good friend
• Safe touch
• Saying “NO”
• Feeling good about yourself
• Dealing with problems and arguments
• What makes a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ relationship
