Olivia’s Place exists to support mums and dads at any stage of pregnancy, from learning they are pregnant, throughout their pregnancy and birth and then through their baby’s first 12 months.
An average of 32% of our clients are referred by other organisations involved in their support network. The services we provide families assist in improving outcomes for parents and their babies, as well as reducing social isolation. We screen all clients for at risk situations, such as perinatal depression or domestic violence, and refer to other services that specialize in the field.
All services provided by Olivia's Place are free of charge, and we are willing and able to support families from any socioeconomic demographic. We don't require that clients hold a concession card in order to access services, and there are no other prerequisites for families you wish to refer.
If you believe you have a client that would benefit from our supports, please visit this page for information on our referral processes. Following referral, we perform an over the phone intake and go on to provide individualized support and resources. Intakes are performed weekly on Fridays, however if you believe support is required more urgently please include that information with the referral or follow up your referral by phone.
