Freedom Centre (FC) is here for young people (under 26) to support each other and their communities to be informed, happy and healthy about their sexuality, sex and gender.
Freedom Centre is run by young LGBTQIA+ people for young LGBTQIA+ people using a peer support model. Our volunteers and staff are all trained to be able to give support and information to their peers.
We are funded by the Mental Health Commission to prevent mental illness and promote mental health, aiming to:
- increase community connectedness and engagement (or reduce social isolation),
- provide relevant information about all aspects of health and wellbeing
- Encourage and support help-seeking.
We do this through a peer facilitated informal safe social space as its most empowering and accessible to young people.
We run a range of sessions and programs, including different drop in sessions throughout the week.
