Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative offers a wide range of services for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander families living or in transit in the region. We aim to provide increased and improved access to culturally appropriate health, children, housing, education, employment and cultural services. Community wellbeing and connection is at the core of what we do and our goal is to continue to build the capacity of our community to achieve self-determination.
Our Health Clinic is open from Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm and offers GP appointments as well as access to specialists. We also have a dedicated Social Emotional Wellbeing team to provide holistic and culturally secure services that contribute to a resilient, healthy community.

We also offer a range of culturally appropriate supports for families experiencing family violence or needing to engage with the Child Protection system.
