The Deli Women and Children's Centre is a family support service, specialising in prevention programs and promoting the safety and wellbeing of women and children.
We provide trauma specialist counselling, casework, groups and family support services to women and children and training to organisations and the community. We also provide parenting support and programs to families, including supported playgroups for children 0-5 years. Established in 1979, we have been providing service to the community for more than 40 years.
Due to COVID 19, clients are suffering greater risk of violence, homelessness, financial distress and increasing severity of pre-existing mental health issues. Similarly, child protection issues are increasing, with an increase in both the number of cases and the severity in pre-existing at-risk families. We are seeing spikes in both numbers of referrals, and complexities in client needs and case presentation
