Thank you for your commitment to the Safe and Welcome Place project. 

This project has been created by the YUMCHA ‘A little bit of everything’ diversity group.  This group of young people work towards addressing the changes needed to take place to ensure inclusiveness in our community.

Aims of the Safe and Welcome Place Project:

1.       Create a place that delivers an accepting service to all consumers

2.       Increase staff awareness and education of discrimination

3.       Increase the capacity of services to deliver an inclusive service

4.       Support staff to increase their own confidence with inclusive diversity

5.       Enhance the visibility of services that are delivering an accepting service

6.       Identify and explore future partnership opportunities with services and                   community

7.       Increase safety and inclusive environments for staff and users.

The SSAFE project provides information, training, support and resources to students and staff at local schools to support gender diverse students, as well as making schools positive environments for LGBTIQ students.

Community education helps to ensure understanding and safety for our young people.
