Cyber Safety Project


As computers, mobile phones and internet access are rolled out to remote communities In Central Australia, young people in the CAYLUS Service area have access to new ideas, resources, opportunities and information from across the world.

CAYLUS Central Australian Cyber Safety Project

Families in our service area, like families across the world, urban and remote, struggle to find ways to manage the risks associated with these new technologies.

With funding support from The NT Library who administer the RIPIA program CAYLUS has been providing cyber safety workshops to communities in our region aimed at helping young people in our region make good decisions about how to use technologies in a safe way. Leyla Iten led the project for CAYLUS.

The workshops are oriented around the following three steps:

  • Talk with local people about how best to establish a response to cyber safety issues
  •  Engage inter-generational groups in an artistic activity investigating cyber safety issues
  • Work with young people and families to design cyber safety resources which provide a platform for discussing behavior which leads to and/or is a response to cyber safety issues.

This project report provides a detailed account of the development and implementation of the project and issues in each community.

Resources

Some of the resources produced as a part of the 2014 workshops are made available here to download in order to share with others doing this work. Documents are available as PDF and as working documents to allow changes so that they can be tailored to the local context. This project was followed by a series of Northern Territory Library cyber safety workshops, in 2015, for service providers and stakeholders across the NT.  Download this book from these workshops here.

Wilurarra Tjutaku Football League


One of the projects that CAYLUS has supported for a number of years is the Wilurrara Tjutaku Football League (WTFL).  The WTFL is set up to help build the playing of competition AFL in remote communities. 

All WTFL matches are played out bush, away from the risks and expenses of town.  Where everyone from the youngest to the oldest of community people can come, play, and watch their own family members and teams play football in a safe and family-friendly environment.  AFL has a long history in the remote regions of Australia, and has a unique character and methods of play.  This comic gives a pictorial history of the WTFL. This recent article from the Alice Springs Advocate also tells some of the story.

Menstrual Hygiene Management


Many girls and women in the CAYLUS service region identify challenges to Menstrual Hygiene Management as a barrier that can reduce quality of life by preventing access to services and opportunities. In recognition of this need CAYLUS has been supporting Menstrual Hygiene Management initiatives in our service region.

Menstrual Hygiene Management


Many girls and women in the CAYLUS service region identify challenges to Menstrual Hygiene Management as a barrier that can reduce quality of life by preventing access to services and opportunities. In recognition of this need CAYLUS has been supporting Menstrual Hygiene Management initiatives in our service region.

CAYLUS works in part to address substance misuse and its impacts by supporting community ideas that improve quality of life. In doing this work we have come to understand that there is a need to look more specifically at the challenges to Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in Central Australian Indigenous communities, and to support communities and their organisations in becoming more girl friendly.

Our work in this area has included supporting practical measures in partnership with local schools, shops, youth programs and other community organisations. These include:

  • installation of cabinets in schools and workplaces so that girls and women are able to independently access sanitary products, which for a host of reasons they may not otherwise be able to access
  • supporting shops in implementing retailing practices that make sanitary products more accessible such as having female staff available at the counter, storing products so that they can be accessed discreetly and stocking an appropriate range of products
  • making good information accessible to young women and their families in a range of appropriate ways

 

MHM in central australia resource

One key outcome has been the development and publication of a book titled MHM in Central Australia. This is the first MHM specific resource to have been developed in Central Australia. It includes information which has emerged from many discussions and workshops with Indigenous girls and women, as well as youth workers, stores, clinics and schools, in the NT communities of Ampilatwatja, Utopia, Atitjere, Ali Curung, Kintore and Ikuntji during 2015/16.

This book aims to develop more girl friendly spaces in Central Australian communities by:

·      Developing an awareness among services engaging with youth of the specific challenges to MHM experienced by Indigenous girls, from and/or living in Central Australian communities

·      Equipping services engaging with youth with locally informed, appropriate MHM knowledge, language and resources, so they may work together with girls and families to support MHM

This is the first edition of this resource and further contributions and feedback are welcome, please contact leyla@caylus.org.au
