Wimmera residents now have access to co-ordinated family violence and child wellbeing services in the one place with the opening of The Orange Door in Horsham.
A partnership between Uniting Vic.Tas, Grampians Community Health, Goolum Goolum Aboriginal Co-operative and the Victorian Government, it will provide face-to-face and outreach services to people experiencing, or who have experienced family violence, across the region.
As well as visiting the Horsham service in person, virtual and face-to-face outreach support will be available at locations across the Wimmera from later this year. The Wimmera includes the local government areas of Hindmarsh, Horsham, Northern Grampians, West Wimmera and Yarriambiack.
From early 2023, two Orange Door practitioners will be co-located at local services throughout the region one day a week and available for face-to-face meetings. Outreach workers will also be available to meet with people where they feel most comfortable.
The Orange Door network is now operating in 15 areas across the state with a further two areas on track to open by the end of 2022.
The Orange Door network is at 3-7 Madden Street, Horsham and is open Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.
