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.
Council is committed to significant investment into planning and ensuring the wellbeing of men, women and their families through a number of celebratory weeks and programs, by funding programs and services to support all age and gender demographics and promoting and partnering with local programs to assist delivery of these services.
The following are ways in which Council celebrate, support and promote local women's services:
- International Women's Day
- Camden-Wollondilly Domestic Violence Committee
- Domestic Violence Support Services
- Camden Women's Shelter
