Our program changes lives

We are Tradeswomen Australia Community Foundation (TWACF) and we support women of all life experiences into long-term financial security through careers in trades.

Watch our SBS World News feature to learn how we’re changing the narrative and changing women’s lives!

Join our life-changing program!

We are supporting 60 women in Wyndham (and nearby) to secure a rewarding career in trades through the Building Futures: Pathways to Trades program. 

Are you interested in a career in the trade industry? By joining the program, you can look forward to links to a great network, willing employers, a great job and lifelong financial security.

Building Futures: Pathways to Trades is free and open to women of all ages and abilities. Childcare and other support is available to help you access the course – tell us how we can help in the registration form.

The program runs on Saturday 24 April, Saturday 8 May, Saturday 22 May and Saturday 5 June. Download more information here!

What we stand for

Why we help

Women represent 2% of the trades workforce.

Australia is entering a lengthy process of economic recovery. As a result, Government and private sector investment in construction and infrastructure will be central to the recovery process.

But the construction and infrastructure workforce is currently 98% male which means that some of Australia’s most recession-impacted women and families will miss out on the recovery, plus employers will miss out on a valuable pool of excellent, dedicated talent.
