Healthy Homes in the Thamarrurr Region

Healthy Homes focuses on the improvement of housing, living conditions and environmental health within Wadeye. This is a collaborative approach between the health clinic, safe house, aged care and other local organisations to address community safety and key health issues.

Under this program, services work together better with clearer channels of communication to address a range of different health issues more efficiently.

The clinic, Save the Children, CatholicCare, aged care, safe house, NDIS and other service providers have the ability to give referrals to community members and the Healthy Homes team if they become aware of any issues.

Healthy Homes also provides jobs and professional development for local staff and builds the capacity and awareness of community members through education and support in maintaining a healthy home.

Healthy Homes has a number of different programs that address key health issues faced by community members.
