03 9450 4700
Region: Northern Metropolitan

Berry Street’s Wattle Project works therapeutically with adolescents who are using violence in their home.

The program is free and available to families:

  • with young people aged 12 to 17 years who are using violence at home

The program will prioritise young people who:

  • live with a single female caregiver or parent
  • are living with younger children
  • are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
  • are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless or involved with the youth justice system because of their use of family violence.

The Wattle Project uses a trauma-informed approach to support adolescents and their families


Before making a referral to the program, professionals can contact the program to arrange a secondary consult.
