Addressing these subjects needs to begin in primary school, starting with family and friendships, boundaries and the difference between safe and unwanted touch.
With your generosity you can help us make a profound impact on the wellbeing of our community. YOUth MATTERs will bring over Year 9 students from local high schools together with industry specialists to share knowledge and develop a practical and positive approach to building healthy relationships and tips for improving general wellbeing. Young people attending the forum will have the opportunity to devise school and community action plans that target key areas of change in their school, in their home, with their peer networks and the broader community.

On Friday 29 th AprilI attended a practical training session in Sydney for a new online youth sexual health forum. The forum is aimed at young people agedwho have questions regarding their sexuality and sexual health.

Young people are learning about sex and relationships, not only from you, their parents, but from TV and films, online, and their friends. They need and want their family to help them to sort out fact from fiction, to understand what is happening to their bodies as they grow older and to talk about their feelings and their relationships. Remember that the earlier you start talking, the easier it will be to tackle some of the more difficult subjects as they grow up.
