ABOUT US

The Lady Musgrave Trust believes all women deserve to feel safe and live a life free from hardship

The Lady Musgrave Trust is Queensland’s oldest charity (established 1885) and a champion for homeless women. 

The Trust provides life-saving services to vulnerable women and their children when they are facing critical homeless situations as a result of domestic violence, family breakdown, poor health and other complex issues.

We can only provide these vital services with the help of the community, donations and sponsorships. To find out more about The Lady Musgrave Trust and how you can help make a difference, please check out our Get Involved section in the main menu.
