Love Bites Canterbury Bankstown Facilitator Training

Mission Australia on behalf of Love Bites Canterbury Bankstown has successfully received funding from Bankstown Sports Club through the Local ClubGRANTS program. This funding will be used to train interested local community and Government workers to become accredited facilitators in the Love Bites program.

Love Bites is a successful healthy relationships education program, developed by NAPCAN and delivered in local high schools, focusing on the topics of preventing domestic & family violence and sexual assault. It consists of two interactive education workshops followed by creative workshops and community campaign. It is a community driven program reliant on local community and Government organisations facilitating/delivering the program, with an opportunity to educate students about the local services in our community.

Over the past 3 years, Love Bites Canterbury Bankstown has delivered the program to over 1500 Year 10 students across Canterbury Bankstown. A Facebook page has been generated for students to ‘like’ to keep informed about respectful relationships. Student’s artworks with campaign slogans are also uploaded onto the page.
