FIRST STEP PROGRAM BUS TOUR
First Step Program would like to invite one or two people
from your team or organisation to attend a tour of their
service. We intend to continually improve the way we
relate to other services and increase staff knowledge around the
issues of Drugs and Alcohol, with the intention that this
opportunity will fill gaps in networking and referrals between
services. First Step Program is a blood borne virus prevention
service In the Illawarra and Shoalhaven area. The service
provides clean injecting equipment, free condoms as well as
support and referrals in all matters of health and welfare
including detox and rehabilitation. It is a free and
confidential service. They also provide outreach services
and education on HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis A, B and C and waste
management of used syringes to individuals and groups.

PLAY SAFE-Working with young people around sexual health: a resource kit
In 2017 the Play Safe resource kit was launched to accompany
the Play Safe website and to support workers in all things
The play safe resource kit consists of several documents which help your organisation to introduce sexual health topics in a supportive and practical way. The kit also consists of worksheets and lots of interactive games and activities around sexual health, relationships, consent and breaking down stereotypes.
All contents of the kit are available as electronic downloads so each of the services can have access to all content covered and discussed. A hard copy of the kit is also available for purchase.
The HARP team are offering you a 3 hour training session to introduce you to the kit and support you in introducing it to your service.
