SL&RR for people with an ABI

In 2018, the SL&RR team partnered with Synapse Australia to gather stories from people with a brain injury where they talked about their experience with rights, sexuality and respectful relationships. From this research, 8 new stories were developed and, SL&RR published a manual which is designed to tailor for people with brain injury to learn about their rights in sexuality and relationships. In January 2019, the new Synapse site have completed their training to Peer Educators and Program Partners  and ran a pilot program over July-August 2019 at Synapse in Parramatta.
