Sex, Love & Dating

A free 4-week online course for all women with a disability, offering practical support around having respectful, safe and fun relationships.

Who is it for?

This group program is for all women (cisgender and transgender) and non-binary people living with a disability in NSW.

This group program is run online by our Disability Royal Commission counselling team, based at our Illawarra Centre in Wollongong.

What will it be like?

Sex, Love & Dating supports people living with a disability to have relationships – both online and face-to-face – that are safe and fun with people they are attracted to. During this program you’ll participate in discussions and guided activities with others in a safe and supportive environment.

The program will cover:

  • Developing self-care practices that are right for you
  • Boundary setting and keeping yourself safe in relationships
  • Dealing with and managing feelings including sadness and loneliness
  • Post-group support - staying connected with helpful services and people
  • Learning about and practicing “I matter / You matter” styles of relating
