BPW Central Coast represents women and girls from all walks of life from Gwandalan in the north to Patonga at the southern most tip of the Central Coast.

Our mission is to improve the lives of women and girls in our region through work and education, and to contribute to programmes that assist in transforming the lives of women and girls living in disadvantaged circumstances and countries.

Our programmes include:

  • Because We Care Boutique Central Coast -

    BPW Central Coast is a proud supporter & advocate of the "Because We Care Boutique Central Coast". Launched in March 2019 in line with NSW Women's Week & International Women's Day it is a local Social Enterprise Initiative destined for positive community outcomes.

    Run by volunteers, who do an amazing job helping disadvantaged women who are trying to re enter the workforce by providing professional attire and support prior to interviews. This is a service for women that have faced severe challenges in life and are aiming to seek paid employment to improve their lives and the lives of their families.

    There are 2 main reasons clients are referred to the Boutique from service providers:

    • 1.    Suitable attire is required for Court Appearances
    • 2.    Interview appropriate attire is required for Job Interviews

     For many women, the first step to getting work is simply having a suitable outfit to wear to interviews. With referred clients seeking assistance from disadvantaged situations or living on the poverty line there is no funds available from the family budget to purchase suitable clothing. The Boutique aims to help women experiencing disadvantage with this situation.

    When women first visit the Boutique for their appointment they are welcomed by a dedicated volunteer stylist with a warm smile, any uncertainty or nerves are soon put at ease.

    In just one hour, volunteers transform a woman from head to toe in quality donated business clothing, including appropriate shoes and accessories.

    The service compliments the referring partners transition to work modules. Women receive one-on-one interview training, presentation advice, assistance with job applications and with updating their resume. These tools together ensure that they are fully prepared to succeed at a job interview.
