Wellsprings for Women

Wellsprings for Women logo

Wellsprings for Women offers education, employment services, health and wellbeing support and other services to refugee and migrant women.

Based in Dandenong, Victoria which is home to the largest community of refugees and migrants in the country, Wellsprings welcomes women from all cultures and faith backgrounds in a safe and inclusive environment.

“Seeing women from such diverse backgrounds gather in one place, engage, converse, build each other up, share joy and grief, setbacks and triumphs, heal, recover, and lift each other up every day, is not a job I do, it is a gift that fills me with hope and nourishes my soul. The strength, resilience and sheer courage of Wellsprings women to make the most of life’s opportunities despite their personal struggles and the social barriers they face, is empowering and inspirational.”
