The Water Well Project is a health promotion charity.
We aim to improve the health and wellbeing of people of refugee and asylum seeker background by improving their health literacy.
Community Organisations- Request an interactive health session
We receive referrals for interactive health education sessions from refugee and asylum seeker support organisations. Popular topics include navigating the Australian healthcare system, nutrition, mental health and men’s, women’s and children’s health topics. Please click here to read what health topics are offered and a general description of content covered: Session Topic Overviews.
Contact us below to find out if your organisation is eligible for our free and tailored sessions facilitated by qualified healthcare professional volunteers. Interpreters are provided if sessions are scheduled within business hours, subject to availability.
Please note our volunteers only provide general health information; and not individual medical consultations during our sessions.
