The Respectful Relationships Workshops are co-facilitated by Allambee counsellors and youth workers from the Street Net Youth Service. The workshop is targeted at students in Years 7 – 12, and is an interactive discussion on issues relating to healthy relationships, family violence, sexual consent and sexual violence, modern communication devices and their impact on sexual violence. The workshop highlights Protective Behaviour themes, and encourages students to develop skills to keep themselves safe and promote respectful interpersonal relationships.

The Annual Peel Silent Memorial March for Domestic & Family Violence is held each year for families, friends and community members to gather in loving memory of all those who have lost their lives as a result of domestic homicide and to call for prevention, protection and support for all those who survive and grieve the experience of domestic violence. Allambee Counselling Inc and Pat Thomas House Inc warmly invite all community members to join us at this important event each year.
