 Van Go Moorabool a finalist in the 2018 Victorian Early Years Awards 
The Victorian Early Years Awards celebrate the exceptional contributions that individuals and organisations make to improving the learning and development of young children and their families.  The awards are run by the Victorian State Government, Department of Education and Training.
WRISC is proud (and thrilled) to announce that the Van Go Moorabool Pilot Project has been nominated as a finalist in Category 4 of the awards:  Promoting Children's Health and Well-being Award.  This award is presented to an initiative, program or project that has demonstrated outstanding achievement promoting children's health and well-being.
The winners of the awards will be announced at a special event on the evening of Tuesday October 23 at the National Gallery of Victoria.
Congratulations to all who have been involved in the Van Go Moorabool Pilot Project , right back from when it was a hopeful vision, to its actual realisation today.  We wish you the very best of luck.

WRISC Family Violence Support

WRISC exists to change the lives of women and children affected by family violence.

Violence (or abuse) can take many forms and includes:
  • isolating from family and friends
  • controlling access to money or how it is spent
  • name calling, belittling and putdowns
  • making all the decisions and controlling what she does
  • preventing practicing of cultural or spiritual beliefs
  • intimidation
  • making threats
  • physically harming
  • sexualised violence

We believe that everyone has the right to be safe, to be treated equally and to have access to the same opportunities as everyone else. We know that violence of any kind denies people these rights.

WRISC helps to provide safety, support, information, advocacy, children's counselling, court support, and case management. We provide services across the Central Highlands region of Victoria, and our service is free and confidential.
