We know Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are important days to celebrate, but they can be tricky for children from diverse families. To support LGBTQ+ families we have developed a new resource designed to help schools and preschools support every family on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
This short, free, afternoon webinar is a chance for schools and pre-schools to learn from Rainbow Families how to plan for inclusivity of diverse families on Father’s Day and Mother's Day.
Charlie Willbridge (Rainbow Families) will share a new resource which gives ideas and guidance to schools and education settings on how to celebrate Father’s Day and Mother’s Day whilst remaining inclusive of LGBTQA+ families. Renata Field (Prosper Project Australia/DVNSW) will share some further resources and ideas for schools and education settings to be inclusive of all families. A young person from the Rainbow Families network will also speak on the impact of a positive school experience to them.
The presentation will run 3.30-4pm, followed by a QnA from 4-4.30pm.

This initiative is part of the Rainbow Families Family Violence Prevention Program – a multi-year effort to engage LGBTQA+ families in the prevention of violence by supporting positive, equal and respectful LGBTQA+ relationships and communities, promoting pride in LGBTQA+ bodies, identities, families and relationships, and raising awareness and community capability to respond to violence.
