"Being able to access education in the [sexuality and relationship] area helps you to understand the rules of relationships."
Our Sexuality and Relationship Education service for people with disability is the first of its kind to be offered by an Australian disability organisation. Developed following customer demand to lift the lid on taboo topics, our educational services have been created to support people with disability to achieve their sexuality and relationship goals and desires.
