Wellsprings offers friendly home visits to women who for a variety of reasons are isolated, home bound, or simply needing to connect and communicate with a support person on regular basis. The home visitation program is available to women in Dandenong, Casey and Cardinia. Wellsprings accepts referrals from agencies as well as self-referrals.
This program aims to improve women’s understanding of their own health and safety issues, the steps to take to prevent harm to themselves and their children, maintain healthy and respectful family relationships, build resilience and positive parenting skills, increase their self-reliance, self-confidence and learn about the services available to them and how to access them. As part of this program, Wellsprings is currently delivering Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities Leading Prevention project for 2018-2019.
