Help Now Group is run by an Accredited Social Worker who is based in Canberra and due to personal interests in technology we thought it would be good to go panel discussion and make it available at no cost to AASW members, nor the candidates. Enjoy!

It will be streamed live on Youtube / Facebook

All behaviour in this Conversation is subject to the Code of Ethics.

The purpose of this group is for the National Board and Branch President candidates to answer questions from members and about what each candidates brings to the Board or Branch. Candidates are free to answer questions how they see fit – this is a democratic and safe space for discussion.

We also reiterate the importance of respectful and constructive discussion. Express comments and opinions in a helpful and diplomatic way – be aware of how they may come across to other people. All comments are being monitored and will be removed if they are not following these guidelines.

Love Bites and Love Bites Junior is an extremely successful high school-based Domestic and Family Violence and Sexual Assault prevention program. The Love Bites (year 10) and Love Bites Junior (yrs. 7 – 9) programs are a whole of school approach for years 7 to 10.

Love Bites and Love Bites Junior is an extremely successful high school-based Domestic and Family Violence and Sexual Assault prevention program. The Love Bites (year 10) and Love Bites Junior (yrs. 7 – 9) programs are a whole of school approach for years 7 to 10. The full suite of four programs are based on best practice standards for education programs as recommended by the Federal Government funded Australian Domestic and Family Violence Clearing House and other leading academics in the area of violence against women (http://napcan.org.au/our-programs/).

Love Bites promotes an integrated partnership approach to prevention and generates local ownership of the
program. Local service providers receive training to facilitate the program with professionals from both Government and non-government organisations delivering the program.

In late 2015, Coast Shelter took on the responsibility as lead agency for the Love Bites program on the Central Coast, which included establishing a dedicated Central Coast Love Bites Coordinator position. Under Coast Shelter’s leadership, the Central Coast Love Bites Steering Committee have actively worked to expand the footprint of the Love Bites program on the Central Coast.

In 2016, Love Bites was delivered to 1,322 students across ten Central Coast high schools. In 2017, Love Bites will be delivered to 1,400 students across nine schools. In addition, Love Bites Junior has been delivered to two schools this year in terms 3 and 4.

Attached is an update from the Love Bites program on the Central Coast for the following:
* Term 3 review of Love Bites,
* Term 3 & 4 delivery of Love Bites Junior,
* 2018 program projections.

For further information on or to discuss the Love Bites and Love Bites Junior programs on the Central Coast, please contact David Nichols (Love Bites Coordinator, Central Coast) at [email protected]
