BPW Coffs Coast

About our Club


BPW Coffs Coast (formerly BPW Coffs Harbour) has worked within the community for the past 50 years to support, encourage and empower women and girls in diverse aspects of their lives. To enable this role, BPW is responsive to the emerging changes and needs of the community. Aspects of support include lobbying local and national governments to provide a voice for women and raise awareness of needs, working alongside community organisations to facilitate dialogue and build networks and using a range of media and events to communicate issues and advocate for the needs of local women.


BPW Coffs Harbour provides a wonderful opportunity for women to meet, network and socialise with other like-minded women. Since its inception in 1972 BPW Coffs Harbour has attracted local women from diverse professional, business and industry settings.

Professional and Personal Development

As a proactive community organisation BPW Coffs Harbour members continue to maintain the established focus on professional and personal development for women and girls through the provision of annual scholarships for female students from Southern Cross University and NSW TAFE (Coffs Harbour Campus). 


BPW organises regular events for members and interested community members. Venues and intentions change and commonly respond to local or global themes and trends. The focus always comes back to the goals of – advocacy, mentoring, networking or projects

Open social event: On the first Wednesday of each month at 10am BPW members and community friends meet for a social gathering over coffee/beverages/morning tea.

From the Club President


As President of BPW Coffs Harbour I am aware of following in the footsteps of women in our community who cared about matters affecting women who are working either in their own business, as employees or professionals.

Our BPW Coffs Harbour members are committed to the cause of representing our gender to ensure that the issues affecting our local community such as homelessness, gender based violence, lower access to permanent jobs and under representation in decision-making are addressed. Coffs Harbour and the outlying towns making up the Coffs Coast such as Bellingen and Nambucca have a strong indigenous and refugee community and I hope to encourage more collaboration to work with them to ensure all local women are adequately represented, advocated for and assisted by BPW Coffs Coast
