We seek to improve the health out-comes and general social well-being of people in Castlemaine and the surrounding region of the Mount Alexander Shire.

We also work to empower individuals and community groups to achieve self direction in personal health and community health.

We understand health beyond disease and injury; that what keeps us well is as important as what gets us better.


Our services range from individual service delivery such as diabetes education and counselling for all ages, to walking groups, group sessions where people can learn, find support and meet others interested in learning about similar issues, as well as community work to support the wellbeing of the community.

Supporting LGBTIQ+ people in our community

Are you passionate about social justice and want to know more about inclusivity? Do you want to better understand the experiences of LGBTIQ+ people?

Castlemaine District Community Health (CDCH) has received a two year government grant to improve the wellbeing of people in the LGBTIQ+ community. To kick off this project, we’ll hold community workshops in September to give everyone in Mount Alexander the chance to find out more about LGBTIQ+ issues and about how they can support their LGBTIQ+ friends.

We want everyone to come along. Doesn’t matter how much you know or don’t know. The most important thing is that you want to learn. The workshops will be spaces where people can come together, ask questions and openly discuss issues that affect LGBTIQ+ people.

Book your place through Castlemaine Community House on 5472 4842 or email reception@cch.org.au
