Women and Men
Camden Council aims to foster and enhance participation by all residents in the life of the community and the life of Council. Council is committed to building and maintaining strong links with local women and men's organisations.
In the 2016 Census, the population of Camden was recorded as 78,218 with 51% being female, of which 22% are aged 35 to 49. This age group is traditionally seen as the 'homemaker' age group and reflects the high percentage of housing growth being experienced in the Camden area. Home making and child rearing responsibilities of this age group can bring with it financial and emotional stress. Council is committed to working with government and local services to assist women as their families grow.
Camden Council is committed to making significant investment into planning and ensuring the wellbeing of Women. Council is currently doing this in the following ways:
- International Women's Day
- Camden-Wollondilly Domestic Violence Committee
- Domestic Violence Support Services
Camden Council is committed to making significant investment into planning and ensuring the wellbeing of men. Council is currently doing this through providing support to local services and agencies including Men’s Sheds at Narellan and Camden.
