About Migrant Women's Support Service

Migrant Women's Support Service Inc. (MWSS) is a non-government, not-for-profit community based organisation, established since 1985.

MWSS receives its funding from the National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA) to provide service delivery to non-English speaking migrant and refugee women and children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, who are experiencing domestic violence, and sector support for domestic violence services in South Australia.

Domestic violence is a crime that is unacceptable in Australia.  It is the most common form of assault that covers a range of behaviours, such as physical, verbal, psychological abuse, sexual violence, economic and social abuse by a husband, defacto or boyfriend. - Please refer to the Resources page of this website, for a more detailed explanation of domestic violence and for the type of services provided, in a variety of languages.

MWSS operates within a Feminist framework that recognises the diversity of women’s culture and family forms, promotes equality and supports the rights of women and children.
