Welcome to Ipswich

At times it’s hands on with our support of Birthing Kits Foundation Australia which has resulted in 1000’s of these lifesaving kits instrumental in decreasing infant mortality in Africa and our neighbouring countries. To date this has been largely achieved through the involvement of local schools. In 2024 we launched our first Community Birthing Kits assembly day. This will be the first of many allowing our club to pay it forward for mothers who don’t have access to the same resources as we do.

We run a comprehensive campaign during the annual 16 Days of Activism advocating for an end to violence against women and girls and to create an Ipswich community that is safer for all. We have produced signage for businesses to display in public conveniences to promote support services, partnered with Ipswich businesses to showcase our messages on local billboards and to display our Orange ladies to raise community awareness. We  have worked closely with Ipswich City Council to install an art project in Lobely Park in Churchill, a red bench in Tulmur Place and to orange the world by lighting up the City Council building. We are active in supporting our partners, like the Domestic Violence Action Centre, during Domestic Violence Awareness month and packing care packs to support women who are escaping violence.
