NatureConnect is an innovative online and nature-based individual and group counselling service for women and children who are at high risk of social isolation due to family violence.
Uniquely, this service taps into the known health benefits of virtual and physical contact with nature, and will facilitate active enjoyment of outdoor spaces for women and their children who are experiencing severe social isolation.
What it looks like
The service will provide a series of 5 individual and group-based therapeutic sessions, including at least one session on-site at the Collingwood Children’s Farm (Covid allowing). NatureConnect will support the formation of friendships and familiarity with the Farm for women so that the women and their children can continue to socially connect in natural spaces after involvement of the service.
