HARP will unpack the Contraception Kit from Family Planning NSW which contains barrier methods, hormonal, non-hormonal and long acting reversible contraception. You will get to blow up and keep an O-cube, which has been specifically designed to demonstrate the internal condom and you will also get to take home a banana penis, which is used to demonstrate the external condom.

The Dangerous Dads Camp is back!

It is really important for every young boy to spend quality time with their Father or significant male mentor. The Dangerous Dads Camp is a perfect opportunity for fathers and sons to connect and get away from the normal distractions and stresses of day-to-day life. 

This camp is on February 29 to March 1 and is open to Year 4, 5 & 6 boys and their Fathers or significant male carers. The camp will be held in Kiama Public School and is open to everyone. But if you feel this is something that your child’s school might be interested in please contact us by phone or email.

Book Now

Held in our very own Kiama Public School, you will enjoy fun and adventure, whilst also participating in professionally facilitated activities. The program is specifically designed to create supportive connections between dads and kids and to help build stronger communities where fathers and male carers have the chance to become the best dads in the world for their children.

What do you get?

The aim is help kids feel secure, connected to family, and valued in a way that has a direct and positive impact on their wellbeing. The program is designed by an expert in Educational Psychology, Emotional Intelligence and Adolescent Brain Development.

The Overnight Camp costs $250 for both of you, and includes food and professionally facilitated activities (BYO tent and sleeping gear).

The specific outcomes include:

  • Parents increase child development skills and knowledge;
  • Parents experience a strong emotional attachment to their child through fun activities;
  • The program provides an opportunity for parents to connect with other parents in the context of child development and wellbeing;
  • Parents learn and implement a number of key parenting strategies given in the program.

It’s a really fun and engaging program that builds relationships between parents and kids, as well as helping to develop a strong community of parental support.

As your son approaches his teenage years it’s crucial that you are able to communicate and understand what he needs at this stage in his life, and The Dangerous Dads camp is the perfect way to do this. 

Here’s what one of the teachers who was on our last camp had to say:

“In my 10 years of teaching, this was hands down the most important initiative I have ever been involved in…Inspirational!”

We also have a pay it forward option, so if you are feeling generous, or if you need some support to come on the camp, just get in touch and we’ll let you know what to do!

National Multilingual Disability Hub

SSI’s National Multilingual Disablity Hub provides relevant in-language information, advice and referrals for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities on disability and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) through a national multilingual hotline and website. The Hub uses two accessible and suitable channels (web and phone-based) to meet the different information needs of CALD communities and their population groups.

The hotline is available in a total of 14 languages, 5 days per week, (1 day per week per language, 3 languages per day) and is FREE to call. It is operated by bilingual staff to answer enquiries about the NDIS, disability in general, and available supports ‘in-language’. The languages available through the hotline and website are: Arabic, Assyrian, Bangla, Cantonese, Farsi, Greek, Italian, Macedonian, Mandarin, Nepali, Spanish, Tamil, Urdu and Vietnamese. Click here to find out more.

The website contains ‘in-language’ information that is available on the NDIS, disability in general and disability supports. It includes fact sheets, links and videos where available in-language.
As potentially the first point of contact for people with disability from CALD backgrounds, these methods offer the initial steps to forming a new foundation on which people with disability from CALD backgrounds can build what the NDIA refers to as ‘an ordinary life’.

Suitable, timely and accessible information provided to people from a CALD background, in their language and preferred formats, will help build confidence and bring people closer to their communities, as well as increase their economic participation.

The Status of an Enshrined Constitutional Voice for Australia's Indigenous People

The Illawarra Centre for Enablement (ICfE) is inviting communities in the Illawarra to discuss the historic developments and explore what needs to happen to enable long-lasting substantial and enduring change for First Nations, to enable Australia’s political leaders to commit to long-held Indigenous aspirations to take their rightful place in their own country and strengthen the future of Australia’s relationship with its Indigenous People.

Expert Indigenous Panel Members:

  • Thomas Mayor;
  • Teela Reid;
  • Charline Emzin-Boyd;
  • Richard Davis;
  • Marcia Ella-Duncan

Panellist Bios are at

Thursday 19 March 2020, 7.00pm to 9.00pm

Australia is the only Commonwealth country that does not have a treaty with its Indigenous citizens, though it has been attempting to take historic steps towards reconciliation with Indigenous people.

In 2017, the Uluru Statement from the Heart emerged from the constitutional convention of 250 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander delegates held at the foot of Uluru in Central Australia on the lands of the Anangu people.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart presented the Indigenous consensus position on Indigenous constitutional recognition and asked for two reforms:

  • a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution;
  • a Makarrata Commission, which could be set up by legislation
