Challenging the CWA stereotype, we're an enthusiastic, dynamic group aiming to help make a difference, especially for those in our community who may need
a hand

CWA Sydney City was formed in 2000 as a non-party political, non-sectarian, voluntary organisation for women of all ages and walks of life. Since then our membership has swelled to over 80 women – ranging in age from early 20s to 70s, from many cultures, professions and walks of life.

Our Branch offers all women a diverse range of opportunities. We’re all for ‘having a go’ and doing our best to:

  • raise much needed funds for educational scholarships and essential health and
    medical research

  • champion community interest in sustainability and the importance of eating locally, supporting Australian farmers and fresh produce

  • raise awareness, drive change and lobby Government around vital social and
    community issues

  • take part in reviving and rejuvenating time-honoured ‘granny skills’ and hold regular workshops and get-togethers on jam and preserve making, and handicrafts

  • participate in Branch, Group and State baking, cookery and handicraft competitions

  • learn about international traditions and customs while keenly supporting our local
    culture; this year’s country of study is Poland

  • support one another in CWA friendship, providing valuable networks and opportunities
    to grow in confidence

  • …along with how-to’s on baking the perfect scone!

CWA Sydney City is proud to be one of six Sydney metropolitan branches which belong to ‘Phillip’ Group.

We encourage like-minded women to come together and continue to challenge the stereotype and help make a positive change to our communities to join us at CWA Sydney City. 

More than just ‘tea and scones’, we’re confident the CWA of today will be around to fulfil its role and continue to be a strong and relevant force long into the future.
