Because You Care

The sexual and reproductive health needs of young people in the Out of Home Care (OOHC) sector have been overlooked and not addressed. This is due to complexities that can arise when discussing sexual health with youth who may have experiences of trauma.

In partnership with NSW Health, we are proud to deliver free online training. This training is for foster carers, those working in the OOHC sector, and those with an interest in trauma-informed sexual health conversations. Because You Care was developed with extensive consultation of key agencies in both the trauma and OOHC sectors.

Sticky Stuff

Sticky Stuff training increases the confidence, knowledge and skills of anyone working with young people around the topic of sexual health.

Participants develop a greater understanding of the barriers young people experience and learn how to assist them to overcome these. This is done through a series of activities and discussions. Participants will develop new skills and finds ways to engage young people in these important conversations. And we also explore additional areas such as STI testing: where, when and how, consent and the law, and where to find amazing resources.

Sticky Stuff is free and available in a 2-hour webinar format and face to face training (COVID-19 restrictions dependent).

Sticky Stuff is a collaboration between Yfoundations and NSW Health and is delivered state-wide across NSW.
