Wattle Project – Supporting Families with Adolescents using Family Violence (Take Two)
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.
