Our Vision

To provide women centred health and wellbeing services that are empowering and evidence based in a safe supportive and wholistic environment.

Statement of Purpose

WILMA Women’s Health Centre is committed to providing access to evidence based women centred health and wellbeing by:

  • Increasing our profile and activities in the Macarthur, Camden Wollondilly and Wingecarribee local government areas
  • Offering access to ALL women in a warm and welcoming space
  • Delivering innovative and wholistic services, groups and activities that meet the needs of all women
  • Aligning with New South Wales Health Priorities for Women

Centre Philosophy

Women’s health is determined by a broad range of social, environmental, economic and biological factors and is affected by gender discrimination, sex role stereotyping, age, ethnicity, racism, disability, sexuality, and sexual preference.

Essential elements of the health process are information, consultation, advocacy, and community development, encompassing health promotion, disease prevention, equity of access to appropriate and affordable services and illness treatment services.

WILMA Women’s Health Centre is committed to ensuring that all these factors are considered when providing services at the Centre.

Centre Objectives

  • Provide wholistic health care which recognises the physical, emotional, spiritual, social, economic, environmental, cultural, and political factors which affect the health of women and girls.
  • Emphasise and promote preventative health care through education, provision of written material, resources and innovative programs.
  • Recognise and challenge the effects of sex role stereotyping, sexism, gender, discrimination and patriarchy on women’s health and wellbeing.
  • Provide a service which reflects the health needs of the whole of a woman’s life span and not just her reproductive life.
  • Provide health services within the context and with an understanding of the experiences and the realities of women living in the local government areas of Campbelltown, Camden & Wollondilly.
  • Operate from a feminist perspective.
  • Recognise the value of women’s own knowledge, skills and abilities.
  • Ensure that women and girls are fully informed of all their health care options and that their choice is fully respected and supported.
  • Actively encourage the empowerment of women and girls in the personal and social aspects of their lives.
  • Maintain an awareness of women’s health issues and to participate in, encourage and promote research into women’s health.
  • Provide a range of traditional and alternative health care services.
  • Promote access to the service, through whatever means available, to all women regardless of their cultural background or heritage, disability, age, socio-economic status, sexuality or geographical isolation.
  • With other women, actively encourage and promote feminist views in debate and take action, as appropriate, to raise women’s health and women’s issues in the political and social context.
  • Provide affordable, confidential health care services run by women for women in a non-threatening, non-judgmental environment with an emphasis on preventative health care.


WILMA Women’s Health Centre Incorporated was established in 1987 through the extensive efforts of the Women In the Local Macarthur Area, hence the conception of the Centre’s name.

The Centre was situated in the Old Coach House across from Campbelltown Mall, Queen Street. WILMA was officially opened by the Hon Peter Anderson MP, Minister for Health and Minister for the Drug Offensive on the 23rd July, 1987.

WILMA is a feminist service committed to improving the health and wellbeing of all women.

WILMA is a Non-Government Organisation (NGO) which is run by a Management Committee made up of local women. It was in 1999 that WILMA outgrew its original premises and with the very hard work and political savvy of an ex-staff member, WILMA was given the land that it currently resides on today. The organisation successfully negotiated to receive funds to construct a purpose-built Centre on the land built with environmentally friendly materials.

Due to all the hard work of the current team at WILMA, we now find ourselves in a similar situation, where we have once again outgrown our premises due to our capacity to deliver a wide range of programs in high demand by women in the Macarthur area. WILMA is currently looking for funding to expand the Centre onto the vacant land parallel to our carpark.

Paying our respect

WWHC acknowledges and pays respect to the traditional custodians of this land, the indigenous elders past and present. It is upon their ancestral lands that WWHC is built.

As we foster health and wellbeing may we also pay respect to the healing knowledge embedded forever within the indigenous custodianship of country.
