Connecting Women Across Queensland
We are the Queensland Country Women's Association.
We are women joined in friendship, and in our strong desire to help others.
We are women of all ages, from different backgrounds and with different life experiences.
We respect and support each other, and we value the individual.
Girl Guides Queensland (GGQ) is partnering with the Queensland Country Women's Association (QCWA) to assist our sisters and their families in drought affected areas.
The goal is to raise $30,000 from their various fundraising avenues, including the sale of those delicious Girl Guide cookies. This is part of their State Good Turn 2016.
Thank you Girl Guides, we appreciate all of your efforts and hardwork!

Here, a new North Mackay Branch member, Nikki Schulz presents a resolution for change at the Northern Region Meeting. These resolutions are often presented, discussed and debated with the State Premier, State Ministers, State MPs, the Prime Minister, Federal Ministers or Federal MPs. These resolutions often present the views and needs of people living in regional, rural and remote Queensland. QCWA has many younger members, with well-formed opinions. We welcome and value their input.
For nearly 100 years, we have actively helped women and their families in crisis, whether from natural disaster or personal crisis. In 2013 and 2014, we helped over 600 families with accommodation or financial assistance enabling them to recover, rebuild and get ahead.
Please help us to help others by donating to our Public Rural Crisis Fund. Read more.
