Women’s Support Programs
Wellsprings offers a number of way for socially isolated women to gain support for themselves and their family.
This program involves trained volunteers who visit women in their homes to provide companionship, social support and an empathetic ear. Activities vary based on women’s personal needs and wishes. The aim is to assist women to build self-confidence, connections and possibly re-engage in the community through available and suitable programs. Wellsprings welcomes referrals from agencies and self-referrals.

This program is designed for mothers especially with children under 12, to support them in their parenting role by providing a range of information on early childhood development, parenting challenges for migrant and refugee mothers raising children in Australia, navigating the children’s support services system, knowing the laws on children’s safety, preparing children for school, setting boundaries, self-care, and respectful relationships.
Wellsprings supports women requiring one-to-one support including liaising with other services, applying for housing, accessing material aid or food, passport application, citizenship applications, or seeking individualised English literacy support in addition to classes they attend. The support provided varies depending on the women’s needs and circumstances.
