Problems At Work?
For all Queensland women who are seeking assistance about issues at work, we are disappointed to advise that from the 1 December 2017, the Working Women Queensland service will cease service delivery. This is because of a shortage of funding and we hope that in early 2018 some services will resume.
In the meantime, the Working Women’s Centres in South Australia and Northern Territory have kindly offered to assist vulnerable Queensland Women and will provide the following access:
When you call please identify you are calling from QLD
NT Working Women’s Centre: please call on Mondays (only) on telephone 1800 817 055 or (08) 8981 0655
SA Working Women’s Centre: please call on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday (only) on telephone 1800 652 697 or (08) 8410 6499
Jobwatch in Victoria receives funding to assist Queensland Workers and can be contacted during business hours on: 1800 331 617 (free call) or (03) 9662 1933 – Melbourne time applies.
