ABOUT US

The Lady Musgrave Trust provides safe and supportive housing to young Queensland women

For 137 years The Lady Musgrave Trust has provided practical solutions that save lives and transition young women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to a life of opportunity and prosperity.

With domestic and family violence the primary cause of young women experiencing homelessness, The Lady Musgrave Trust gives young Queensland women (and their children) somewhere safe to go – a place they can call home for up to 18 months.

While living in one of our 11 properties, The Trust walks beside these women to heal and create a new life. We work with these young women to build their skills and their confidence so their aspirations can be realised.
