12 June 2019:
We are pleased to announce that the 250K website has been refreshed and a new section for young adults has been added.
These resources have been updated and created through engagement with young people.
- The 250K homepage now provides an option for young people to access the original school-aged teens site or a new site developed for young adults.
- The 250K school-aged teens site has been refreshed with a new homepage to make finding information easier.
- The young adult site has been created to allow young adults to access information particularly relevant to them. Topics include managing allergies at university and in the workplace, when travelling, when moving out, dating and when starting a family.
Now that the websites have been completed, we will be commencing our chat forums which can be accessed through the websites. The chat forums aim to engage with young people and help young people connect with each other. We look forward to ongoing chat forums to support young people in managing their allergies, particularly food allergies. The chat forums will also form an important part of our peer mentor program.
The 250K youth project has received funding from the Australian Government Department of Health.
