Wollumbin Family Support

Services That Prevent Domestic and Family Violence

Project Description:

Wollumbin Family Support is based in Murwillumbah, New South Wales. It provides community-based services and resources that respect diversity and promote safe families, and thereby creating safer communities. Its focus is on prevention, and providing options for recovery from domestic violence.

Since 2015, Dharma Care has been part of a community movement to re-establish this important service. When WFS registered as a charity in December 2016, Dharma Care continued to assist with planning, regulatory requirements and funding applications. The current priority is to adapt an internationally recognised Recovery Skills Program to be appropriate for the local indigenous community.

Annual Target: $7,000+


On behalf of the Board of Wollumbin Family Support (WFS), I extend our deepest gratitude for the outstanding expertise, wisdom and guidance given by Irwan Wyllie to WFS in its formative stages. Irwan was instrumental in preparing an excellent draft Strategic Plan. This was a massive piece of work requiring intensive and extensive research and compilation, and WFS continues to refer and build on the work he authored.
