SHFPACT identifies the importance of all health workers in promoting and supporting the sexual and reproductive health of the Canberra community as well as reducing the barriers to improved sexual and reproductive health.

Parents & Care Givers

ZOO is a flexible and powerful content application builder to manage your content

Parents and care givers play an important role in the teaching of sexuality and relationships to their young people.

Most parents and carers know that, just like learning how to play or talk, sexual development is a part of human development. We know that it will happen whether we talk to our children or not. (Talk Soon. Talk often: a guide for parents talking to their kids about sex (2011) Govt. WA, Dept. of Health).

SHFPACT acknowledges that sometimes these conversations can be hard. But we also promote sexuality and relationships education as a lifelong learning experience that cannot simply be learnt through one talk alone, but rather many conversations and experiences. 

Disability supports

Sex & Disability

SHFPACT affirms that individuals with a disability are sexual beings, with the same diversity of sexual feelings, needs, and identities shared by all people in the community.

Teachers & Educators
