Physical health & wellbeing

  • How can I get support for my health and wellbeing? to expand question #1

    Depending on your needs, you may be able to join one of our social support groups, participate in our wellbeing workshops, seminars and activities or receive one-one consultation. Our team will assess your needs and discuss an appropriate path for you.

  • Do you provide counselling and how much does it cost?

    Yes, PRONIA’s bilingual counsellors provide counselling in Greek or English. Free sessions are available for low-income earners and those on Centrelink payments, while those on Home Care Packages can access the service through their package. Our counselling service is also available to any member of the community. Any applicable fees or further questions can be discussed with your counsellor.

Community Awareness & Information

  • What programs do you offer to the general community?

    We offer a range of community and information programs. Some programs are designed to inform the community about all of the support services offered by PRONIA. Other programs are designed specifically to provide information, raise awareness or targeted to professionals in the social and health fields. For example general English language conversation classes are available to the general community to enhance English language skills. We have a variety of sessions planned throughout the year ranging from safe relationships aimed to build and support healthy relationships to sessions aimed at parents of young children. For details of sessions and booking check the What We Do sessions on the website.
