It is never too soon to start!I AM A DAD, SHOULD I COME ALONG? We NEED dads to take part in this conversation. We acknowledge that for some dads (and mums as well!!) it can be a little awkward or even confronting. We promise to make it light and accessible. Your presence is very much welcomed & respected.I AM AN EDUCATOR / TEACHER / SERVICE PROVIDER, AM I WELCOME?YES! We know the best education is one where the family is working closely with the school and other agencies with the best interests of the child at heart. One of our missions is to make an easier communication pathway between families, schools and services. I CAN’T GET CHILD CARE FOR THE EVENING, CAN MY YOUNG PERSON JUST COME ALONG AND SIT UP THE BACK?No, unfortunately. This is an evening of robust conversation and some of the topics we cover are sensitive and explicit. It is not an environment for your child.I HAVE A HISTORY OF TRAUMA, WILL IT BE SAFE FOR ME TO ATTEND?This is an evening of conversation regarding healthy sexuality and abuse prevention methods. It can be triggering for some people, especially those who have a history of trauma. We are focused on positivity and prevention, and all of our material is geared toward solutions, healthy attitudes and a positive role modelling. Please be self responsible in the space and ask for help if you need. WILL THERE BE DINNER SERVED?No, just tea and coffee and some sweetness!I STILL HAVE QUESTIONSPlease feel free to email
