Victorian Pride Centre to help Isolated and Rural LGBTI Young People

The Victorian Andrews Government has announced a grant of $100,000 to the Victorian Pride Centre to support young people in rural and isolated Victoria.

“Our newly established website (https://pridecentre.org.au) is now going to be able to feature a virtual platform of mental health resources and information for socially or geographically isolated young LGBTI people,” said Jude Munro AO, Chair Victorian Pride Centre.

“This will mean they will not feel so isolated and be able to get online information and resources around the clock.”

“We will work with beyondblue, Victorian AIDS Council and Switchboard to make sure we add value to their existing resources.”

“We are grateful to the Victorian Government for their insight into the needs of our community and the speed of their response to this pressing problem of isolation.”
