headspace Wollongong receives a large number of requests from the community, yet we have very limited resources. Therefore, we find we have to prioritise requests according to the areas of greatest need, staff availability, demand and fair and equitable coverage of the local community.
Priority is given to the following local organisations:
Schools & education providers
Our partner organisations
Community organisations, charities and not-for-profits with a youth and/or mental health focus
Family & Carer support organisations
Requests from other types of organisations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
We are unfortunately not able to fulfill all requests. Allowing at least 10 weeks notice will increase the likelihood of us being able to fulfill your request.
Depending on what type of organisation you are, our community activities are mostly free. Some requests may incur a fees to cover part or all of our costs due to the nature of the activity (for example, requests from commercial organisations, weekend and evening requests, specialised content etc).
Once you have submitted your form our team will review the request and aim to respond within 10 working days. Thank you for reaching out to headspace Wollongong.
