Wombat's Wish

Wombat's Wish


Each year, approximately 100 children in the Geelong area experience the death of a parent. Currently, Wombat's Wish is the only specialist service that offers support to these children. This is an extremely difficult time for them and their family, and this can potentially result in long-term emotional health problems.

Wombat's Wish is based on a very successful and highly regarded Winston's Wish program in the UK. Wombat's Wish aims to provide a similarly valuable and extensive service in the Geelong area.

The service is a therapeutic one, provided by a team of professional facilitators in conjunction with trained volunteers. We provide two camps per year for the bereaved children and their guardian/s.

At Wombat's Wish we believe all bereaved children, young people and their parents/carers have the right to information, guidance and support to enable them to manage the impact of death on their lives.

Donations go towards ensuring the camps can take place to assist parentally bereaved children.
