You can create and customise your own avatar, known as a WupU. Change your WupU’s facial features, from mouths to eyes and hair. Allowing you to customise your avatar in anyway you like. To provide you with anonymity, you can also generate a random avatar if you wish. You can also dress your WupU avatar, choosing from a variety of different tops, bottoms and shoes. Then, you can save your outfit to the ‘my wardrobe’ section. Make your WupU avatar look like you or make it completely different! Your “Wupu” will then represent you in Wupwoo, including in the chat venues.
In your personal space, you can decorate everything, including walls, floors, and adding furniture. Decorate and furnish your own personal space to suit your style. Your personal space is completely private. No-one else can see or enter your personal space. There is also a ‘help’ section if you need any guidance with using your personal space. Some furniture items in your personal space also take you to other areas of Wupwoo. Don’t forget, you can save your favourite information hub resources to your personal space.
Socialising on Wupwoo can be a great way to meet new people and chat with them about similar interests. It is also a way for you to connect with people facing similar difficulties as you. In the socialising area, you will see multiple chat venues about a variety of topics. There are ‘public’ venues, or ‘private’ venues. To enter a private venue you must request entry to a chat in order to chat, or be invited. You can also have one-to-one private chat with other users. All chat venues and private chats are monitored for your safety. There is a moderator in every chat venue.
The ‘support’ section works just like the ‘socialise’ section. It lets you connect with people with similar issues, creating a supportive community. It gives you the opportunity to potentially help other users and be helped by other users. Upon entering a support chat venue, you will be asked to answer three simple questions in order to gain access. After this you may be asked to pick a costume to wear for the specific venue. This costume is to disguise your gender and provide you with full anonymity.
We have information hubs on a range of topics. Browse through a variety of self-help videos, documents and links to other helpful resources.

Don’t forget to rate the resources when you leave an information hub, so we know which resources users find most helpful! There is also a user list, where you can see moderators and professionals. This lets you talk to them for one-on-one for support and help.
