Option 3: Consultancy
FPQ provides a professional consultation service to schools and organisations. FPQ is able to attend an organised meeting or case conference to facilitate discussion about strategies to support specific sexual behaviours in a positive way. The outcome of the consultation is that parents, carers and professionals are resourced to respond to the sexuality and relationships education (SRE) needs of the child, young person or adult they are supporting. Usually consultations run for 1.5-2 hours. It is important to talk with the young person or adult with a disability about the meeting first. Contact your nearest FPQ education office to discuss a professional consultation for your school or organisation.
