Rural and Regional Services
A number of newly arrived people from refugee backgrounds now settle directly in rural and regional Victoria. There are also significant numbers of people who are relatively recent arrivals who have moved from Melbourne to rural Victoria. The provision of sensitive support for individuals and families as they rebuild their lives is equally important whether they live in a rural community or a large city.
Foundation House has contracts with regional counselling services to provide short term torture and trauma counselling in Geelong, Colac, Swan Hill, Bendigo, Ballarat, Mildura, Shepparton, Latrobe Valley and Wonthaggi. Secondary consultation, training and advocacy around refugee physical and psychological health issues to rural and regional services are also available on request.
