The support of Optus has helped run a number of Kids Helpline initiatives, drive innovation and use technology to reach more kids. We’re proud to have been partnered with Optus for 19 years. Optus supports Digital Thumbprint with Kids Helpline. This is a free, early intervention and prevention program for primary school-aged students in Australia. Kids Helpline counsellors deliver in-classroom support programs via video conferencing technology. There are eight curriculum-aligned topics that aim to promote digital respect, responsibility, resilience and empathy and online safety.
Optus services over ten million customers each day. It provides a broad range of communications services including mobile, telephone, business network services, internet and satellite services. Optus says ‘Yes’ to supporting and investing in community, with a mission to help vulnerable youth achieve their full potential and enjoy a bright future, through the use of technology and life-enhancing programs and community grants.
Bupa has partnered with Kids Helpline to expand the in-school education program Kids Helpline @ School. Kids Helpline @ School Wellbeing 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.
