Due to current social distancing regulations, the Looking After Me Program (LAMP) is now temporarily available online.

LAMP will run in the usual format with interactive activities, video clips, links to websites and copies of educational brochures provided to supplement online sessions.

Sessions will be conducted using Zoom or Teams, which are secure, web browser-based services. The participant will be provided with an individual link for each session, which will only be shared with them. No equipment or special software is required.

Participants will just need to be able to access a secure and stable internet connection and a laptop, PC, or tablet for the sessions with a camera, speaker, and microphone function. They will also need a current email address to have the meeting link sent to join the sessions. Having a trusted adult to support the participant throughout each session is still a pre-requisite if they are a child, or an adult requiring support. If there are problems with internet connection on the day of the appointment, the session will be rescheduled.

Please book your package in the usual way. Following payment, an educator will be in touch to make a suitable time for a virtual meeting.

Important

Education is provided during LAMP sessions. LAMP does not provide counselling and is not a crisis response service or an investigative service for sexual assault. If you reasonably suspect that a child is experiencing sexual abuse contact the Police 000 or Department of Child Safety. Further, if you are an adult experiencing sexual abuse or relationship violence, (or you support an adult with disability experiencing this) call 1800 RESPECT or visit the 1800 RESPECT website.
