Castlemaine District Community Health (CDCH) offers a wide range of services and programs aimed at promoting health and preventing illness.

Our objective is to design and provide programs and activities which ensure community members receive primary health, preventative care and community support services which are accessible, responsive and of the highest quality. LLW

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.

During the last few years we have also been actively engaged in case management services essential to communities and individuals in their efforts to recover from the recent bushfire and flood events that have affected our local communities.

To find out more about the services we provide, call us on (03) 5479 1000.
