HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Hedland can sometimes intensify isolation due to the distances between locations, the harshness of the climate, and the primary industries of the town. The Home Away From Home program provides connection and support during times of difficulty.
• Our staff are always available to sit down for a cuppa and a chat, and provide support in a variety of ways. That might be a listening ear, or providing information about a service.
• Our monthly morning tea allows women to connect with others and to learn more about the local community
• Our What Women Do events are sun downers 18+ evenings. These social events run every 2 months with a different theme for laughter, fun and connection.
• The Drop In Centre is open for rest and respite during centre hours. It provides a place to have a tea or coffee, take a shower, get some fresh fruit, and freshen up. It is also an ideal space for mum to feed, change or weigh bub, or retreat to a quiet space.
It’s been very rewarding to see women make friends, engage with their community and find employment through the connections they make at the Centre. This program is what makes the Hedland Well Women’s Centre a unique and special organisation. The Home Away From Home program has run at the centre for almost 10 years and is part of our BHP Community Health Partnership.
