Sexual Lives and Respectful Relationships (SLRR)

SLRR (formerly Living Safer Sexual Lives: Respectful Relationships or LSL:RR) uses a community-driven and collaboratively developed model to deliver a peer-led relationships and sexuality program for people with disabilities in local communities. It was developed in collaboration with people with intellectual disability and University researchers.

How SLRR works 

People with intellectual disability are trained as peer educators to run the program in collaboration with community sexual health and sexual assault response professionals who are trained as program co-facilitators.

Together peer educators and co-facilitators form local networks that work together to promote, further develop and evaluate the program and to connect it to other abuse prevention work locally.

This model and program are unique. It focuses on ideas of rights, privacy and safety within relationships using stories told by people with disability and gathered through life story research. People with disabilities are engaged throughout the program and drive the ongoing development of the model.
