True Relationships & Reproductive Health (True) have developed a free educational resource for people with disability. True’s Feel Safe app profiles the stories of six young people and uses interactive games to teach personal safety in a fun and interactive way. The app reinforces information on:
- types of touch
- rules about touch
- who to talk to if you need help
- male and female body parts
- wanted and unwanted touch
- body warning signs
Young people and adults with disability face a higher risk of experiencing sexual abuse.
Feel Safe was developed in response to many requests from parents and carers, staff and educators for a resource which helps foster the development of personal safety skills for this group.
The app is designed for young people aged 12-16 with mild intellectual disability and/or ASD. Individuals with moderate learning needs and/or disability can also use Feel Safe with assistance.
