What happens when I sign up to Women’s Health Week?

We know how annoying it can be to receive lots of emails, so we promise not to overwhelm you with too many during the year – just a few to stay in the loop. Then, during Women’s Health Week in September, you will receive one email each day of the week packed full of our free health information based on the topics for the week.  


When do registrations open?

Event registrations will open 27th March 2019. 

How do I register an event?

Visit the event registration page and complete the required information to register your event. Make sure you check your inbox for a confirmation email. If you require assistance filling in your registration form call us on 03 9453 8999. 

Our tip: If you don’t receive an email maybe check the junk e-mail folder.

I’ve never hosted an event before.  Can you give me some ideas?  

As long as there is a focus around women’s health and wellbeing, the sky’s the limit on the type of event you can host! It doesn’t have to be hard. We have had events ranging from expos and information sessions, fitness classes, workplace morning teas, book clubs, bike rides and walks with friends. 

Our tip: Choose something you would love to do yourself!

What resources are available for my event?

Once your event is registered and approved you can order our free Women's Health Week gift bags for your attendees. These bags contain a variety of Jean Hailes resources including our latest Magazine and health information booklet.  

Our tip: Resources are available while stocks last, so get in early so you don’t miss out! 

I would like to attend an event. How do I find one in my area? 

Jump on the events page and search your local area, by postcode, to see if there are any events you’d be interested in attending. All events displayed on our website are public and will include all the details. 

Does Jean Hailes host events?

On the opening weekend of Women’s Health Week, Jean Hailes holds the Women’s Health Week Comedy Gala in Melbourne. For more details make sure you're signed up to hear the latest news. All other events are run by our partners, workplaces, community groups, and individuals.  

Can I use the Women’s Health Week logo to promote my event?

Unfortunately not.  Using either the Jean Hailes for Women’s Health or Women’s Health Week logo to promote or cobrand your event is not permitted without written consent.

Will everyone see my event online?

You can choose to make your event public or private. If you make it public, it will appear on our event page. By making your event public you are giving more people in your community the chance to attend. 

Our tip: If your event is being held at your home we would recommend making it private.

Can I hold my event outside of the Women’s Health Week dates?

This year’s Women’s Health Week will be held from 2-6 September. We understand that it is not always possible to hold your event during the actual week and you are welcome to have an event anytime. However, to be eligible to receive the free gift bags and resources your event needs to be held between 26 August and 16 September. 

Can I make changes to my event once it’s registered?

Absolutely. Just contact us on 03 9453 8999 or by emailing whw@jeanhailes.org.au and we can help you.

Resources and delivery

How do I order gift bags?

Once you have registered your event, you can then fill in the details for the gift bags.

How many gift bags can I order?

To ensure we can offer resources to as many hosts as possible, we ask that your order is in accordance with your estimated attendee numbers. You can order as few as 10 or as many as 100. If you are hosting a larger event, please contact us to discuss details. Charges may apply for larger orders. 

Is there a cost for the gift bags?

Our gift bags and resources are free to event hosts who register an approved Women’s Health Week event and are available while stocks last.

When will my gift bags arrive?

Our resources will all be sent out from the beginning of August.

I live in a rural community. Can I still order and receive gift bags?

We love to support women in rural, regional and remote communities and we can deliver all around Australia!  Please bear in mind, however, that the gift bags are delivered via courier service and your order may take a little longer to arrive.  

Our tip: Please allow at least two weeks for delivery and register your event as early as possible so we can prioritise your order.

I’ve missed out on the gift bags! Should I still have an event?

Absolutely! Due to the ever-growing number of events and limited stock of gift bags, there is a chance we may run out before you register your event. Don’t despair! We have a variety of other excellent Jean Hailes resources available to order free online at https://jeanhailes.org.au/health-professionals/resources-order or you can also purchase items from our online shop. 

Digital resources

Do you have any free event material I can download?

Yes. We can help you make your event really stand out with a wide range of event material on our website that you can download, including invitations, name tags, place cards, bunting and our Let’s Talk cards.  

How can I promote my event?

Word of mouth is always good, and you can also order free postcards and download posters from the website. If you would like to promote your event to the media, there is a media release template available as well.


Do I have to fundraise at my event?

There is no obligation to fundraise at your event, however as a not-for-profit organisation we gratefully accept donations. If you do decide to take donations at a Women’s Health Week event, as part of our T&Cs, we do request that the funds raised are passed on to Jean Hailes and not another organisation.  

What does the money raised go towards?

All donations go to helping Jean Hailes and the work we do in women’s health. Your donations will help fund our clinics, our research unit and the translation of research into practical educational tools for women all around Australia. 

Is my donation tax deductible?

Yes! All donations above $2 are tax deductible.
