Summary of activities

The Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights (AMWCHR) is an organisation of Muslim women working to advance the rights and status of Muslim women in Australia. We work for the rights of Muslim women in Australia by: • Empowering women’s self-determination • Bringing a human rights approach to bear on issues of inequality and disadvantage • Working with individuals, communities and government to advocate and educate for equality within the Australian context. We prioritise practical assistance for women to improve their lives in tangible and measurable ways. We work with individuals, groups and service providers in the following areas: • casework, referrals, secondary consultation and outreach • advocacy • community-based programs and service delivery • capacity building • leadership development • policy development • partnership projects. The Australian Muslim Women's Centre for Human Rights provides a number of services to Muslim women and community sector professionals across Australia. We work with women through information provision in workshops, leadership and capacity building group-work sessions. In addition our casework services provide one-to-one support to Muslim women escaping family violence, as well as assistance to newly arrived Muslim women for settlement-related issues. We use a human rights framework to amplify the voices of Muslim women. We acknowledge the inherent agency that Muslim women have, and our research, programs and services are designed to build capacity and raise awareness breaking down structural barriers that exist for Muslim women both within Muslim community and in broader social and political contexts.  Our consulting and training services are provided to build the capacity of sector, organisations and partners to adequately respond to Muslim communities through culturally safe awareness raising training. This work draws on our expertise formed through working with Muslim women and young Muslims over the last 30 years.
