Tailored Information Sessions

If our calendared, topic specific information sessions are not what you're looking for we conduct tailor made, 1.5 hour sessions. These parent and carer information sessions are designed to expand their confidence and comfort in having conversations around reproductive and sexual health (RSH) with their family member.  During these sessions you are also able to view resources to support different learning styles.

Tailored information sessions can be held at a service or community space, or you could register to attend one of our calendared, topic specific, sessions at our Box Hill site.
