Statistics Don’t Lie.

Young people need our support more than ever.

  • 24% of Victorian young people indicate they have high psychological distress, with stress, anxiety, low self-esteem or self-harm noted as the biggest mental health challenges.*
  • 16% increase in the offending rate by young people in 2023 when compared to the previous year.#
  • 47% of Victorian secondary school students indicate they experience school challenges including attending and completing school.*
At Blue Light Victoria, we are at the forefront of prevention. We act early and work with young people to build their skills and knowledge which increases wellbeing, resilience, healthy and safe decision making.
We actively engage with local communities. With our key partners police and other emergency services, we bring life changing programs to schools and communities, creating connections and improving positive outcomes for young people.

Our dynamic and evidence-based approaches really work!

But we can’t do it alone – we need your help.

This June, we are asking you to please consider making a tax-deductible donation to ensure that this important work doesn’t just continue but grows, allowing for more young people and their local communities to thrive.
