Because You Care
For some time, the sexual and reproductive health needs of young people in the Out of Home Care (OOHC) sector have been overlooked and not addressed 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 a new free online training module, targeting foster carers, those working in the OOHC sector, and those with interest in trauma-informed sexual health conversations. The development of “Because you care: fostering conversations about sexual and reproductive health” involved extensive consultation with key agencies in both the trauma and out of home care sectors.

Sticky Stuff

Our one-day training aims to increase the confidence, knowledge and skill of those who work with young people on the topic of sexual health.

Through a series of activities, participants will develop a better understanding of the multiple issues experienced by young people. They will develop skills and plan actions that will make their service more engaging for young people.

The training includes, but is not limited to:
games, tools, and resources
up to date information
local info on testing and treatment
tips for program development

Sticky Stuff is a collaboration between Yfoundations, NSW Health’s STI Programs Unit and NSW Health HARP Health Promotion. Sticky Stuff is delivered in 30 locations across NSW annually.

Due to the effects of COVID-19 on the community Sticky Stuff face-to-face training is currently unavailable. Alternatively, we have created a Sticky Stuff online webinar, so you will always feel confident in speaking with young people around the topic of sexual health. For further details please reach out to health@yfoundations.org.au

Sticky Stuff Online
Sticky Stuff Online is an engaging and interactive adaption of the popular Sticky Stuff training. The training provides youth workers with tools, valuable tips and activities to support young people around their sexual health.

The online training is funded and developed in collaboration with the NSW Department of Health.

Due to the high demand of the Stick Stuff face-to-face training, we decided to develop an online training version that allows those who are time poor or in remote locations to participate in this valuable sexual health training.

Sticky Stuff Online provides the opportunity for all youth workers across the state to take the training from any location and at their convenience.

You can even take the online training as a refresher to brush up on your sexual health skills if you have already attended the face-to-face training.

Hear from a previous face-to-face training participant from Western Sydney:
“The best aspect of the training was the mix between the information and activities, it allowed me to process and enjoy the learning. Excellent range of resources to use in practice!”
