There are a range of expert organisations available to support you with the inclusion of transgender, non-binary and rainbow people.

  • InsideOUT – an organisation that provides workshops, resources and support to help make schools, community organisations and workplaces inclusive for rainbow people 
  • New Zealand Human Rights Commission – an advocate for the fair treatment of all members of the LGBTQIA+ communities. The Human Rights Commission offers a free, informal enquiries and complaints service to deal with unlawful discrimination. Complaints can be made by phone, email, letter, fax, text or using the complaint form 
  • OutLine – a confidential, free, LGBTQIA+ affirming support line and face-to-face counselling
