Home/Programs/TALK Project


TALK builds Trust through Activity, Learning and Konnection.


Talk programs are specifically designed and resourced to:

  1. Support children in their ability to identify and have trust in a network of supportive adults.
  2. Introduce and develop new strategies and ideas for positive communication between children and their peers and other adults.
  3. Develop strategies to increase problem solving skills.
  4. Increase children’s awareness regarding their emotions and build skills in emotional regulation.
  5. Provide a welcoming, safe and nurturing space to create a predictable non-confrontational environment for children, allowing them to practice skills in developing healthy peer relationships.

Specialised programs within TALK include:

  • Tweens after school drop in (community connections) & school holiday program.
  • Tweens Workshops (skill building & peer support) & Residential Camp.
  • Playpod (after after-school activity at Barrack Heights Public School).

TALK is delivered on a weekly basis at:

  • Barrack Heights Public School (Playpod).
  • Lake Illawarra High School.
  • Warilla North Public School.

Funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services under the Families and Communities Program.
