Community Programs

Community Based Programs

IMPROVING COMMUNITY SAFETY

We offer a range of prevention, behaviour change and community development programs. Our programs challenge your thinking and offer strategies for positive change in the way you work and live.

We run our programs and support groups for the wider community including our specialised programs for the indigenous community, youth at risk and correctional centres across NSW.

Our dynamic presenters have the experience, knowledge and determination to teach life skills which can make a positive difference. All of them, including CEO Ken Marslew AM, present with real life and academic experience few other people have, and bring an engaging passion for the role.

Programs include:

Promise Keeper (DV Awareness)

A family/domestic violence awareness presentation outlining and defining family/domestic violence, consequences (both short and long term) and strategies to deal with it (for both victims and perpetrators). Includes a restorative justice component.

Time: Approx. 50 mins

The R Youth Program

The R Youth Program has been designed to give young people (age groups from 11 years to 18 years) identified as “at risk” an understanding of their behaviour – the consequences of their behaviour and the strategies to deal with that behaviour in a simple and positive way. Raising empathy, building positive relationships and tools for emotional management, building resilience and personal values into daily life are also part of this proven program.

The program is suitable for co-educational groups, CALD groups or specific single gender groups.

Topics covered are:

  • Responsibility
  • Highlighting the impact of anti-social behaviour on the broader community
  • Raising the awareness of personal responsibility
  • Re-Evaluation
  • Past attitudes to a range of issues
  • Building values
  • Tools for positive change
  • Relationships
  • Dealing with emotions
  • Types of relationships
  • Goal setting strategies

We recommend separate sessions for teachers and parents to inform them and to assist in the best possible outcomes. On completion of the program attendees are given a certificate of attendance.

Team Spirit Support Groups (Yrs 4 – 6)

Is your child:

  • Being bullied?
  • Showing signs of not coping with challenging situations? Situations such as bullying, anxiety, stress, anger, separation/divorce?
  • Finding it difficult to express feelings?

Then Team Spirit is the right group for them. Team Spirit is an age appropriate support group for children and young people who are experiencing some of these challenges. It’s a place for them to talk and express how they feel in a confidential and safe environment. Fun activities are based around learning effective strategies and coping skills in an interactive manner.
