Supporting community wellbeing in Hume and Whittlesea

Phase 1 - Community Watch Partnership Project

Hume Whittlesea Primary Care Partnership (HWPCP) and DPV Health  have joined forces, with assistance from Whittlesea Community Connections (WCC) and Banksia Gardens Community Services, to develop the Community Watch Partnership Project in response to the disruptions caused by COVID-19.

The purpose of the Community Watch Project was to assist community organisations and groups, which play an important role in supporting all members of our community, during this period of restrictions and recovery.

The partnership has proudly developed the resource:

Health and Wellbeing Service Directory

This is an online directory for health & wellbeing services in the north-west of Melbourne.  This directory allows organisations and general public to search for services in this area.  The directory covers a range of health and non-clinical support services, and community-based programs.

A big thank you to DPV Health for their support and work in assisting to update this version of the directory.  Your help is very much appreciated.
