The Australian Government is inviting Teach Us Consent, via a restricted process, to apply for the Promoting Consent Initiative between 1 December 2023 and 14 December 2023.
The Promoting Consent Initiative forms part of the Australian Government’s agenda under the First Action Plan 2023-27 of the National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-2032.
The initiative was announced as part of the 2023–24 Budget measure and will run from 2023–24 to 2024–25.
The purpose of the program is to engage young people aged 16 years and over on consent issues and healthy sexual relationships, with the aim of contributing to a reduction in sexual violence and harm among young Australians.
The objectives and outcomes of the program are set out below.
- To use trauma-informed and age-appropriate social media and online communication methods to improve the attitudes and understanding of consent and healthy sexual relationships among young people aged 16 years and over, with the aim of contributing to a reduction in sexual harm.
- To improve the confidence and motivation of young people to actively practice affirmative consent skills and respectful behaviours with their sexual partners using a strengths-based approach.
- To improve the Australian Government’s understanding of emerging youth issues around sexual harm, and what works when engaging young people on issues relating to sexual harm.
