Warrondi Engage and Link Initiative
Warrondi Engage & Link (WEL) is a residential program that offers support and counselling for Indigenous adults (18 years and over) experiencing homelessness due to a complex range of life domain issues including substance misuse.
The WEL Program is an extension to Supported Accommodation and Recovery Services (SAARS) West and is managed by the Aboriginal Outreach Team. It provides a safe, supportive, drug and alcohol free environment, where participants must be medication compliant and committed to the program.
The philosophy that drives the WEL way of service delivery is the notion that 'change' and the 'change process' is the key to a better, healthier way of life.
