  • Be proactive, working to constantly review and improve our strategies;

  • Educate the broader community about resources that are available to both survivors and their supporters;

  • Reach out to high school students and their parents to start education early, share resources and normalise consent culture;

  • Normalise discussions about sexual violence to spread awareness and inform behaviour;

  • Spread awareness and provide educational resources to the community;

  • Educate people about sexual health and safe, fun and inclusive sex;

  • Break down stigmas regarding reporting, sexual violence, sexual health and what constitutes abuse, by—

    • reducing stereotypes and ending myths regarding these issues.
