Welcome to the new online home of The Lady Musgrave Trust. As Queensland’s oldest charity, The Lady Musgrave Trust was founded in 1885 and has a proud and long history of service. In this time, the Trust has provided accommodation and support assistance to more than 10,000 young women and their children.
This new and improved website and revamped look represents a new chapter for The Lady Musgrave Trust and one that is filled with exciting things ahead. We still have so much more important work to do.
Please take the time to read about what we do, our history and our research on homelessness and young women. Discover more about the services we offer, how your support helps and the many success stories we are happy to share.
On our new site, you’ll also find plenty of information about how to get involved and the various events the Trust is involved in such as our Annual Women and Homelessness Forum, which is we just held or our fabulous ShelterHer Cocktail Party very fast approaching.
The Handy Guide
Another very exciting resource you can find here – and one that we are very proud to offer, free of cost – is The Handy Guide.
This guide is an informative booklet developed by The Lady Musgrave Trust to empower women across Queensland – both in rural and major metropolitan areas – who are without shelter or at risk of becoming homeless.
It is a comprehensive go-to resource developed to help women in need, when they need it most, with the details and listings of vital services such as accommodation, food and welfare, health services, legal assistance and specialist domestic violence support services. It also features a wealth of information on community and employment services, as well as emergency phone numbers.
Going forward, The Lady Musgrave Trust has ambitions to become a key resource on women and homelessness in Queensland and to continue to be a name that people know and recognise as a hub they can turn to for advice and support.
