Stepping Up

Stepping Up Consortium is made up of three not-for-profit agencies:

  1. Odyssey House Victoria
  2. TaskForce and
  3. Youth Projects.

Our three agencies work together to provide innovative counselling and rehabilitation services for Victorians experiencing substance misuse and mental health issues.

The Consortium formed in 2008 and quickly went on to win awards such as Not For Profit Network Partnership of the Year Award in 2009 and runner up for a Victorian Community Safety Award in 2010. Recognised by many as leading best practice in the field, our approach leveraged the best of partner agencies while ensuring the efficiency and effectiveness of a single program provider model.

Between our partners we have over 80 years experience in working with people with multiple and complex needs. Funded by Federal, State and Local Governments as well as Trusts and Foundations across many different programs we look forward to facilitating a bright future for those who turn to us for the high quality support we are known to provide.

We provide a Intensive Day Rehabilitation, Counselling, Forensic, Care and Recovery, Groups and Non-Residential Withdrawal Service.

All staff are friendly and professional using evidenced based therapies to support you reach your goals.
