Safe Schools Coalition ACT

SHFPACT is proud to work with Canberra schools and our collaborating partners to support school communities to be safe and inclusive places for same-sex attracted, intersex, and gender diverse students.

Sexual Health and Family Planning ACT (SHFPACT) has a long record of service provision and advocacy to meet the identified needs of same-sex attracted, sex- and gender-diverse Canberrans, and is proud of a longstanding commitment to gender equity in health, education and community services through our training programs for professionals in these industries.

For SHFPACT, the Safe Schools Coalition program represents a continuation and extension of this commitment to helping families as primary educators and schools as formal educators for Canberra's young people.

SHFPACT is making our services more affordable for everyone

You’re just a few clicks away from a discounted consultation at SHFPACT!

SHFPACT strives to provide a high quality healthcare service. Our consultation times are generally longer than in general practice, and we provide a specialised reproductive and sexual health service. Quality care is however expensive to provide and the membership discount is one way we can make sure you receive the very best service and the time you need with our team of reproductive and sexual health doctors, nurses, counsellors and educators, without breaking the budget.

Talking to teens about sex

Parents and care-givers play an important role in the teaching of sexuality and relationships to young people. Most parents and carers know that, just like learning how to play or talk, sexual development is a part of human development and know that it will happen whether we talk to our children or not.

People with disabilities

Sex & Disability

SHFPACT affirms that individuals with a disability are sexual beings, with the same diversity of sexual feelings, needs, and identities shared by all people in the community.

Support for teachers

Support for teachers

Providing sexuality and relationships education in schools is a rewarding and challenging task that teachers and educators should feel supported and confidant to do. SHFPACT has been supporting public, private and faith-based schools in Canberra to deliver effective, relevant, accurate and responsible sexuality education since the 1970s.
