Mates and Dates

Mates and Dates

SASH are the providers in the Nelson region of the Mates and Dates in school programme for Years 9 – 13, developed by ACC as a response to the high incidence and risk of sexual violence particularly in the 15 – 24 age group.

The following topics are presented over five sessions by two trained and experienced facilitators using multimedia and an interactive learning style:

  • Healthy relationships
  • Communication and consent
  • Identity, gender, sexuality and gender stereotypes
  • What to do when things go wrong
  • Keeping safe together, being an ethical bystander

The aim of the programme is to increase knowledge and to look at attitudes that lead to behaviour around relationships.
