About the Event

Wednesday March 14
7.30pm – 9pm
18 Girven Road, Bayfair – ImagineBetter Office

Intimacy, sexuality and sexual health are personal matters. Many parents struggle with these topics and aspects of their sons and daughters’ lives. If your child has an intellectual impairment, supporting them with these very personal matters can have further complications.

ImagineBetter is partnering with Family Planning NZ in an attempt to better understand what resources, support, information and practical assistance you would benefit from ‘in this space’. Our sense is topics such as public / private; friendship vs’ relationship; asking permission and consent; personal safety; social media are some of the important subjects, but we would love to hear directly from you.

Join with Hilary Thorne from Family Planning NZ and Tony McLean from ImagineBetter for a facilitated conversation on intimacy, sexuality and sexual health so that we can better understand what would be of most use to you and your sons and daughters.
