Welfare Support

Our welfare services include assisting with health and wellbeing issues, tenancy and accommodation, Centrelink and referral information. We offer direct assistance and information and can advise you on other organisations and support programs that are better equipped to help you. We can additionally help with complaints, discrimination issues, and have a list of free local legal advice centres for you to access.

COMPLAINTS
UWA is committed to providing an environment in which student complaints are dealt with in a fair and timely manner, and in the best interests of both parties. We can help you through the process of lodging a complaint.

COUNSELLING
We have an in-house counsellor providing free counselling sessions! Come to Vanesse for a confidential chat about any academic or personal concerns – she’ll help you find the tools to get you back on track.

DISCRIMINATION
If you feel you have been discriminated against, harassed, or bullied, then please do not hesitate to contact one of our qualified Student Assist Officers for an impartial and confidential chat.

FOOD PANTRY
Struggling to afford food? We’ve got your back, with free non-perishable food items available on a no-questions-asked basis.

LEGAL RESOURCES
