Macleod is a not for profit organisation that has been operating on the Gold Coast, Queensland since 1992. We provide supported crisis accommodation within a high security unit-style refuge complex. In addition, we provide some external supported crisis accommodation within the same school zone.

Our administration costs are covered by funding and all donations are used for direct support for the women and their children we are supporting. This can range from very specific needs to broad general needs for all of our women and families. Your contribution is welcomed and valued.
