Who We Are
GenWest formed in 1988, initially as the Women’s Health Service for the West and then as Women’s Health West. In 2021, after extensive consultation with communities in the west, we made the historic decision to change our name to GenWest.
Find out more about our board of directors, our values, vision and purpose and the communities we work with.
GenWest's work is guided by the goals and vision in our Strategic Plan. Here's a snapshot of our work from the 2022-23 financial year:
community members reached by GenWest’s primary prevention and early intervention programs.
referrals were accepted by our After Hours team, who provide face to face support to clients in crisis accommodation, such as motels.
increase in requests for sexual and reproductive health education sessions.
victim survivors were supported by our children’s and youth counselling service.
