Time and intense pressure creates a gem of beauty, strength and worth: a Diamond. A Diamond’s worth does not change in value due to circumstance or environment. Our mothers are our Diamonds and we want to meet our treasure in their moment of need.
Who we are
Diamond Women’s Support is a warm, engaging community based not-for-profit organisation that provides holistic support to women and their families facing an unplanned pregnancy.
In 2006, Diamond was started to provide real alternative options and support to women and families navigating their choices and support around an unplanned pregnancy. It provides counselling, outreach, parenting and mentor support groups, material assistance and casework service referrals. These services are readily available for young, vulnerable, pregnant and or parenting women as well as their families who are in crisis.
Since its launch in 2006, Diamond has provided over 1,200 pregnant and parenting women and their families with thousands of hours of counselling, mentoring and support. Our service has always operated twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to ensure women can access the support they need any time. We support women from Greater Western Sydney, Central Coast, South West, Sydney CBD, Illawarra and surrounding areas. As of September 2018, Diamond Women’s Support, and Sara’s Place merged together to increase strength in numbers, resources and support for all women in need of help.
The women and families that we see at Diamond are some of the most vulnerable and at risk in our community. Without the care, counselling, practical assistance and support services that Diamond provides our clients and their babies would face a very uncertain future.

Our team is staffed by a broad range of qualified professionals from various backgrounds that hold our key values around listening, understanding, empowering and offering hope.

Our goal is to reach and accommodate our Diamonds, as well as their families, facing an unplanned pregnancy by building a network of support that provides long term solutions. Through emotional and practical assistance we hope to empower and equip women to reach their dreams.
We do this by offering practical assistance in the way of pregnancy tests, baby and maternity goods, accurate information about all options, support, advocacy, counselling and group classes focused on navigating the thoughts and concerns of women experiencing unplanned pregnancy.
All of our services seek to relieve women of the anxiety unplanned pregnancy can cause by meeting both their immediate and long-term needs.
We encourage each woman to seek medical advice from a GP or Family Doctor. No appointment is necessary to receive services from Diamond Women’s Support, but if you wish to avoid wait times, schedule one in advance today.
