Wombat's Wish

We assist bereaved children to find a way to live with loss and grief, to move forward and take the next steps on their bereavement journey.

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.

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.
