Woman Made site

The basic form of the site is to display eligible women’s businesses ready for customers to click on the link to redirect them to your website or fill in a contact form.  The South West Women’s Health and Information Centre (SWWHIC) will promote the site extensively by printing a postcard, sending to email groups, submitting articles to relevant newsletters, sites such as Tourism WA, talking to groups and other ways we devise as this project develops. 

Our site is a portal and has no role in the sales of your items. If you don’t have a website, the contact form will direct them to your email.  You can then conduct business with any one who makes contact with you with no involvement from SWWHIC.

Feedback on your wellbeing

All participants will be asked to fill in a self-assessment form at the start and end of a year of their involvement commenting on their own wellbeing and providing feedback on the impact of this project on their sales at the start and at the end. No financial information will be requested.  The Centre will also send a half way point evaluation and suggestion form to all participants so that we can improve the process along the way. A compilation of these comments will be used to provide an over view for our funding providers and of course privacy will be preserved.  Non identified testimonials will be requested at various times.

The page of the website promoting you and your products needs this information provided by you.  

  1. Once accepted you will be emailed with the your login information and you will need to finalise your profile.
