Student Wellbeing Services

As part of our vision to create a just and fair Western Australia where everyone can thrive, Anglicare WA’s Student Wellbeing Service aims to build the confidence and resilience of children and young people so that they can remain engaged and connected to school, fulfil their potential, and become active members of their communities.

 
We’re proud to partner with the Department of Education in this new program. We will provide student wellbeing services to Western Australian public schools, commencing in Term 1, 2024.
