Strengthening Family & Community

Well Being Outreach Program

Well Being Outreach Program 

For disaster affected residents in Lithgow, Mid-Western, Hawkesbury & Blue Mountains

Gateway Family Support Services and Wentworth Healthcare, provider of the Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network are partnering to provide free outreach well being support for residents in Lithgow, Hawkesbury and the Blue Mountains. 

The Well Being program sits alongside Gateway’s Step by Step Recovery Support Service to provide practical, emotional and psychological support to residents affected by the 2019/20 bushfires and the more recent floods.

Our Well Being workers provide holistic, accessible, person-centred support.  The Well Being workers are trained counsellors, who provide a simple and respectful way to help people manage the stress, loss and anxiety that often comes with experiencing disaster events.

There is no need for a referral, no labels and no drawn out waiting period. Well Being workers can travel to residents to meet them in their homes or meet at local community venues.  

If you would like to talk with a Well Being worker,
