Uniting Vic Tas
We’re here for you.
Uniting Vic.Tas provides a wide range of social, family, mental heath, alcohol and other drug, and disability services to help Wimmera Grampians residents feel adequately supported. From emergency relief, counselling, to foster care, you can receive the support services you require in order to thrive.
185 Baillie Street is home to a range of different programs including homelessness support,
NDIS services, counselling, foster care, and child care services. Most of our programs cover residents of West Wimmera, Hindmarsh, Horsham Rural City, Yarriambiack and Northern Grampians regions. We offer flexible access with a combination of office, outreach and other options available. Reach out to us to learn more.
Alcohol and other drug addiction can negatively affect all aspects of your life as well as those around you and the wider community. Uniting Vic.Tas offers a variety of different services from counselling, harm reduction programs, detox, rehabilitation, home based withdrawl and additional family support services. We also provide tailored support for Aboriginal and Indigenous people.
Horsham social support is here to help others connect with those around them, and join in helping others connect. Social support focuses on new skills, creating a network with like-minded people, and building each other’s confidence.
In times of crisis, Uniting can provide you with emergency relief services. Whether you require food or fuel vouchers, non-perishable items, material relief or information on available community supports we’re here to help.
The Christian Emergency Food Centre in Horsham and Stawell Uniting Church are emergency relief access points that can assist with food, vouchers, bills and general expense assistance.
Across Victoria and Tasmania, we offer a free Energy Bills Support program. Uniting Vic.Tas can help you if you’re getting behind on your energy bills and require assistance to contact your retailer, stop a disconnection notice or set up a payment plan. We can also help you learn more about how you can save money on your energy bills. Call us on 1800 313 126 or email [email protected]. This is a free over the phone service, that anybody can access.
As a registered provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), we offer our services to those living with a disability.
There are opportunities to develop new skills on site like cooking, computing, and budgeting, as well as meeting new people and connect with the local community through our social inclusion support day program.
Positive mental health is essential to overall good health and wellbeing. Uniting Vic.Tas’s mental health counselling provides people across the Wimmera Grampians region with mental health and wellbeing support.
We offer weekly, fortnightly or monthly sessions. Find help for a range of issues including managing mental health disorders like anxiety and depression, working through grief, managing relationships, and dealing with change. We also offer specialised counselling programs for children under 12 years old to support children’s wellbeing.
Family matters can be challenging, but don’t necessarily have to be dealt with alone. Engage with our range of family and parenting services at Uniting Vic.Tas Horsham.
These services include:
● Parenting skill development group, one-on-one and playgroup sessions
● Family mediation services to ensure clear and constructive communication
● Out of home care services including Kinship care and leaving care
● Residential care
● Flexible and affordable child care.
● Family violence services which provides those experiencing violence or abuse with counselling support, group sessions and access to escaping violence payments.
Uniting Foster Care services work to recruit, train and support foster carers who can provide safe and nurturing families to children who are unable to live with their birth families. The aim is to provide stable and loving homes for children and young people in need, helping them to achieve their full potential and move towards a brighter future.
Everyone deserves safe and stable housing. Uniting Vic.Tas Horsham offers multiple housing services such as transitional and community housing to find affordable and suitable places to live. We are also able to provide tenancy support services if you are having issues with existing housing.
In the case of currently being homeless or if you are in danger of losing your home, you can access our emergency housing and other homelessness support services so you can find safe and secure housing when you need it most.
For some students, it’s easy to become disengaged with school and for attendance to rapidly drop. Our school engagement programs work with students in primary and secondary who are at risk of disengagement. Our programs encourage confidence and build on children’s strengths, enabling them to reconnect with their school community and find a renewed interest in their education.
Young people aged 12-25 and living in Wimmera Grampians can access our variety of tailored youth support services.
These services include:
● Mentoring services for young people aged 12-17 who are facing personal, family or educational difficulties.
● Residential services to provide young people with safe and stable housing.
● Support services for young people to create connections and restore family.
