NOTICE TO OUR CLIENTS:
We want you to know in advance that WestCASA is growing and changing in early to mid 2018.
We will continue with our Footscray and Melton locations and now have a new location in Hoppers Crossing.
Hoppers Crossing will be our main office and we will be part of a Multi Disciplinary Centre (MDC) with other agencies responding to family violence and sexual assault.
We will be joined by Victoria Police Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team (SOCIT) and Family Violence Units, a Family Violence Service, Child Protection, Gatehouse Children’s Sexual Assault service and a Community Nurse.
If you are currently seeing your counsellor at Footscray or Melton, that will continue unless you wish to change locations – you are most welcome to come to the MDC.
Our Wyndham Vale and Hoppers Crossing clients will be able to come to our new location at the MDC in Hoppers Lane, Hoppers Crossing.
We are not sure of the exact date yet, but we will keep you posted.
Please talk to your counsellor if you have any questions.
