This collaborative project, funded by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice, will strengthen the capability of the targeted workforces engaging with children and young people who have experienced sexual violence. The overall aim is to reduce their vulnerability to further abuse.

It will build on findings from the Building Trauma-responsive Sexual Health and Relationship Education project. Read more.

Drawing on NAPCAN's model of strengthening community networks, regional and rural workforces will be:

  • trained to deliver survivor-driven and trauma informed Respectful Relationships Education to children and young people
  • equipped to engage in effective planned/opportunistic conversation about respectful relationships, within therapeutic practice or role as trusted adult.

Our role in this project is to provide NAPCAN with expert guidance, facilitate research activities, facilitate communities of practice, and develop a series of research outputs.
