Brophy have been supporting children, young people, families and the south west Victorian community for almost 50 years.  We live here; this is our community, we believe in people and in their ability to create the life they want.

For Children

Brophy is the only local, south west Victorian provider of out-of-home care.  Our Foster Care, Kinship Care and Residential Care Services provide children and young people who are unable to live with their own families, a safe and secure place to live.

For Young People

We work alongside young people, recognising that is their skills, talents and dreams that matter when supporting them to create the life they want and for them to be connected to their peers and community in meaningful ways.

Our supports for young people cover areas including health, wellbeing, mental health, AoD , education and employment, accommodation support, and family reconciliation. We also have post care support services, programs for young parents and support programs for our LGBTIQA+ communities.

For Families

At Brophy we recognise that families come from a diverse range of backgrounds and have a wealth of strengths, skills and experiences they can bring to assist us with supporting them have every opportunity to thrive.

We have services and programs to assist families with parenting, mental health, drug and alcohol issues, family violence and housing support.

For Adults

We embrace the thought that every person is unique – their life experiences, abilities and beliefs are all a part of how we offer support. We want to build connections, create meaningful experiences and to ensure all we work with have the opportunity to be the best they can be.

Our NDIS Support includes our social enterprise Tasty Plate Catering and other programs to provide adults living with a disability vocational support and individual living skills.  We offer support for accommodation services including temporary and permanent housing options.

For Community

Our community is the reason we exist. Building an advantaged community through creating meaningful connections is important to us.

We offer community based programs for those new to the south west in our Welcome to Warrnambool program and our SAFE in the South West program helps connect and support our LGBTIQA+ community members.

We offer support for financial services thorugh the NILS program and our Friday Feed program supplies meals and an opportunity to for food relief for those in our community in need of some assistance.
