Ern Halliday Recreation Camp

The Freedom Centre, is a drop-in centre in Perth which provides a safe social space as well as peer support, information and referrals to LGBTIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning) young people, has been funded to host weekend retreats for LGBTIQ young people (aged 14-25) in 2018 and 2019 with the aims of promoting good mental health and decreasing distress.

These retreats have been specifically funded to allow rural, regional and remote (RRR) young people to participate. Freedom Centre can now provide travel scholarships to 16 RRR young people (up to $1000 each) to allow them to participate in the retreat, when previously they may have been unable to attend.

The first FREE retreat is Friday 5th-Sunday 7th January 2018. We would greatly appreciate you forwarding this email along to any relevant contacts or networks you have, or even young people who might be interested. To attend this retreat, you must be aged 14-25, LGBTIQ, and living in WA. If you are interested or would like more information, please email Claire at

We are also looking for feedback about what  LGBTIQ young people would like to do at an FC retreat. If you know an interested young person, please encourage them to fill out this short survey so we can make the retreat as enjoyable as possible.

Meet the team

Vanessa Vlajkovic

Hi! My name is Nessa and I’m 20 years old. I’m studying Journalism at Edith Cowan University, with a Public Relations minor. I am an avid reader, writer, traveller and cheerleader. I’m also a passionate advocate for the deafblind community, and for other types of disability. I’ve been on the committee of the Youth Disability Advocacy Network (YDAN) at YACWA for a few months, and through them have developed a desire to become a YEP volunteer, as I want to expand my horizons.
