Who we are Family
Planning NSW is the state's leading provider of reproductive and sexual health services. We provide clinical services, information and health promotion activities, education and training for health professionals and allied groups, research and advocacy.
As an independent, not for profit organisation, we recognise that every body in every family should have access to high quality clinical services and information, and we provide a safe place for people to talk about their most intimate and personal issues.
We operate five fixed clinics in NSW (Ashfield, Fairfield, Penrith, Newcastle and Dubbo) and use innovative partnerships to deliver services in other key locations across the state accounting for around 28,000 client visits annually.
We are experts on contraception, pregnancy options, sexually transmissible infections (STIs), sexuality and sexual function, menstruation, menopause, common gynaecological and vaginal problems cervical screening, breast awareness and men's health.
Our services are targeted to a broad range of communities, including people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds, refugees, people with disability, young people, people from rural and remote communities and LGBTI people.
Donations from private donors and funding from the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade also enable us to assist poor and disadvantaged communities in the Asia Pacific region by delivering access to comprehensive reproductive health and sexual services.
We work to provide men and women access to the widest range of family planning methods and services while respecting the cultural values of each community. In line with the United Nations we recognise that access to family planning is one of the most cost effective and important approaches to reducing maternal and child mortality and poverty.
