The importance of having support people-UNDA

Working within the Healing Foundation education framework a KSGAC morning education session saw 26 University of Notre Dame students participate in a yarning circle with KSGAC staff and members. Students were asked to talk through their own support people; who they turned to for help as children and now as adults.

With guidance the students made Protective Behaviours hands and were asked to help children in their own family groups or through their work. Protective Behaviours is frequently used in schools across Australia as a method of building up supports for children and reducing the risk of abuse.

The Students hands will be combined with the other hands made at KSGAC in the month of June. The Sea of Hands can be seen during the KSGAC NAIDOC event on the 4th of July.
