Welcome to Wombat
We proudly acknowledge & respect the traditional custodians from whose ancestral lands we operate.
Welcome! Wombat Housing and Support Services provides a free service to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness throughout the west of Melbourne. We support people of varying ages, those with families, those who are single including those residing in public housing.
People who are homeless or at risk of homelessness who have links with Melbourne's North West are supported to attain and maintain suitable housing.
Our values guide our policy development, our service delivery, our decision making and our realtionships within the organisation, with our service users and external partners.
We try to respond to the individual needs of people seeking our support.
We place a high value on being honest, genuine and communicating as directly and clearly as possible.
We foster connection, warmth and good humour within our organisation and in our dealings with others.
We try to be open, transparent and accountable to each other, to the people who use our services, to government and the wider community.
We are open to new ideas and embrace change. We will continue to explore new and innovative service delivery models and advocacy strategies. We acknowledge success and failure and endeavour to learn from both.
