Prevention of Violence Against Women
Wellsprings for Women has a dedicated team of staff who specialise in designing and delivering programs on gender equality and prevention of violence against women. The Team develops resources, delivers education workshops, organises events and seminars, consults with women regularly on emerging issues and incorporates gender equality learning into all of Wellsprings programs.
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.
Formerly known as Mentor Program, this revamped program provides women with space, time and support to connect with other women, build confidence and friendships and engage in a variety of activities designed to enhance the women’s health and wellbeing and build their resilience and emotional capacity.
