LGBTI Advisory Committee resources
Throughout 2018, the Commissioner's advisory committees have been focused on raising awareness on the priority issues facing LGBTI children and young people and positive solutions.
Below is a case study and four videos created by the Bunbury Senior High School Advisory Committee and the Perth LGBTI Advisory Committee. These will be used in schools and available to any organisation working with children and young people to help develop inclusive policies and protocols to create safe, inclusive environments for LGBTI children and young people.
