Bupa has partnered with Kids Helpline to expand the in-school education program Kids Helpline @ School. Kids Helpline @ School connects Kids Helpline counsellors with primary school aged children in classrooms using video technology to help children develop tools, resilience and knowledge to set them up for happy, emotionally healthy lives. The program focuses on a number of key topic areas aligned to the Australian Curriculum, including bullying, friendships, managing emotions and transitioning to high school.
Bupa is committed to building outcomes with organisations that share the same values and who are focused on bringing positive change to the lives of people across Australia.
For more than 20 years we have enjoyed a strong partnership with Optus together we have developed campaigns and programs which educate, inform and most importantly keep children and young people safe. Those programs have equipped children and young people with knowledge on how to use and apply new technologies productively and safely.
For us, it has never been about awards or recognition, that said we are incredibly proud of the work undertaken collaboratively to launch a world-first real-time web counselling service in the early 2000s. Demand for web-chat continues to grow today, with thousands of children engaging, we can never really place a value on what that service has brought to the community but we do know many lives have been saved.
At times of challenge, as we are experiencing now, and as we have experienced with significant events such as floods and bushfires, we need to ensure children and young people are not left behind, simply because they don’t have access to the internet, thanks to Optus we are able to support young people at risk of being isolated from help and support through Optus new initiative Donate Your Data.
We are proud of what our partnership has achieved in the last twenty years in supporting children and young people to live safe, happy lives.
