Windermere is an independent community service organisation working across south east Victoria to help those who need it most. Since our beginning more than 150 years ago, we have been working to create a stronger, more connected and supported community.
Our support comes in many forms as we work together to find the right solutions for the many and varied complex issues faced by children, families and individuals in our community.
Our aim is to get in early by providing programs and services within these primary areas:
Whilst we receive funding for some services from state and federal governments, others are funded solely by donors and sponsors to whom we are truly grateful.
We believe that everyone is someone in our community and that is reflected in our approach with those we work with everyday.
Windermere is committed to protecting the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people.
Windermere is committed to equity & equality for consumers and employees, this by building diverse and inclusive services and work environments, where all peoples from Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander, Culturally & Linguistically Diverse, LGBTIQ+ Communities and those living with disability will know and feel accepted, affirmed, safe and celebrated. Windermere is delivering this through the continued development and implementation of our Welcoming and Inclusion Strategy 2021-2024. All forms of discrimination, including that based on race, culture, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity, will not be tolerated. All employees, consumers and visitors are expected to behave in non-discriminatory ways.
