    Support in Schools

    Our work in schools includes providing resources, counselling, education programs, and information sessions for students. The current national program, the Safe Schools Coalition, has been very well received in schools. 

    The Safe Schools Coalition began in Victoria around 5 years ago after research revealed that 80% of LGBTI young people still experience bullying and harassment at school. Schools can become members of the Coalition, and then have access to support from the project officers at WIO to establish a whole school approach to being inclusive and safe for LGBTI students, families and staff.

    We also provide counselling to school students and this may be through a request from school staff, through parents or students themselves who are welcome to make their own appointments.
