Her Futures
The Her Futures Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established to empower First Nations women through employment, education, enterprise, and cultural and social support.

 

We do this through three major programs:  
  • Women’s Business 2nd Chance 
  • Return To Work Pathways 
  • Her Futures Wellbeing Program 

Our vision for First Nations women is a future without barriers where opportunities are abundant, and self-determination is embraced. 

 

We want to see an equitable Australia, where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls have equal rights to quality education and employment.  
Her Futures envisions a world where all First Nations people are empowered to rise above challenges, embrace their cultural heritage and reclaim their rightful place as leaders, innovators and advocates. 
We see a future where opportunities are limitless for First Nations people.

Women's Business 2nd Chance

Building new futures for women in Western Sydney, Northen New South Wales and Western Australia. 

The Women’s Business 2nd Chance (WB2C) program is a ground-breaking program for women at risk of being left behind. It aims to give them the chance to achieve quality learning, entrepreneurship and employment outcomes through access to educational, employment and support services, tailored to their needs as learners and future earners.  

The vision for the WB2C program and hubs is to create meaningful and lasting opportunities that can transform the lives of First Nations women across Australia. Women that have been continuously marginalised and excluded socially and economically. 

This is achieved through providing tailored employment, education and entrepreneurial mentoring and programs. In addition, the program also offers social, emotional and wellbeing support in a culturally safe environment. The program is currently servicing over 900 women across Australia. 

A proportion of donations received by the Her Futures Foundation are used to directly fund Women’s Business 2nd Chance programs and events.

Return to Work Pathways Program

Funded by the NSW Government, the aim of the Return to Work Pathways Program is to support women who are experiencing complex and persistent barriers to employment to enter or re-enter the workforce, by helping them to gain increased work readiness and to secure sustainable employment.   

Through Women’s Business 2nd Chance, we deliver Return to Work in Western Sydney, Newcastle, Dubbo, and Wellington. 

Through this grant, we have been able to expand our services to Dubbo and Wellington, with regular outreach services, partnerships with local employment providers and employers, and a successful employment connection day in Dubbo! 

In Wellington, we have partnered with TAFE to support 5 women to study towards a qualification in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care. Once qualified, they have the opportunity to move straight into a job with Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Service (WACHS).
