Info for Parents

The ‘NSWRL Changing Rooms’ program is designed to educate and provide support to the youth of the NSWRL sporting community.

The Changing Rooms support program is offered to sporting clubs and schools’ players, pupils, staff, volunteers and their families dealing with violence, mental health, illness, injury, social inclusion, disabilities and other life challenges of our youth.

The Changing Rooms program will be facilitated by NSWRL in partnership with Youth Insearch with assistance from expert presenters from industry accredited support networks of Mental Health and Wellbeing organisations in the dressing rooms of sporting clubs or schools.


Youth Insearch runs one of the most successful youth intervention programs in the country. They work with young people aged 14 to 20 supporting them to turn their disadvantages into their advantages, enabling them to reach their full potential.

The Program is an award-winning, proven, comprehensive early intervention program of counselling, support, mentoring and empowerment, delivered through weekend workshops, support groups, peer support, leadership and individual care.  The program has a peer focus, on young people helping young people.

The program works by allowing young people to confront and deal with the reality of the pain in their lives. By drawing on the resources of other young people that have experienced the same issues and addressing the real problem or underlying issue, the young people seek positive alternatives within themselves, turning away from a life of despair and destructive behaviour.

The program intervenes early, allowing young people to deal with their issues as they start to appear.
