Preventing the sexual assault of
one young person
every single day.
There is an old saying:
“How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time.”
The problem of sexual abuse & assault in our under 25’s population is a behemoth of a problem.
The One a Day Project aims to show how, as individuals, families and communities, we can eliminate this problem.
One community at a time, one family at a time. One child at a time.
There lies great power in the individual to create lasting positive impact on this problem.
Each of our team has committed to changing this problem for
one young person,
for the rest of their lives.
Will you join us?
How do we keep
one young person safe,
Educate & Empower Youth
We believe our young people are desperate for honest & reliable sources of information regarding their sexuality and their safety. We believe they have a fundamental right to comprehensive & practical education.
We offer programs for both young men and women that focus on safety & prevention, as well as sex positive, values driven relationship skills. We also have the pleasure of hosting mother & daughter camps on the Mid North Coast of NSW twice a year.
Create Confident Parents
We believe that family values & robust conversations are the best way to create a safe future for our young people.
We help parents learn how to have those tricky conversations with their kids, guiding them to be a go-to from birth, right through any challenging times they face. Our Courageous Conversations Parent Resource Centre is an ideal place to start for all families. We can also come to your community or school and deliver a Courageous Conversation Parent Seminar.
Engage the Community
The sexual assault and abuse of young people is a community problem and will need a whole of community approach to find a solution.
We host community events that invite professionals from all fields to educate and engage communities to create cultural change in regards to sexuality, gender & violence.
Support Parent Survivors
We know that there are an unacceptable number of victims in our community, who are now adults, and who are struggling to come to terms with the violence that has been done to them.
We understand the challenges they face and we are extremely passionate about supporting them to parent their own children in ways that are safe & whole hearted. Chapter One is an ongoing online support community for women who are mother survivors.
Smash Stereotypes & Question Culture
We are passionate about breaking down the misconceptions that enable violence to occur in our homes and communities. We achieve this by giving a voice to those who have been impacted by discrimination, violence & misunderstanding.
The Love Playground is our first online project – a fortnightly podcast that explores all the healthy ways members of our community live and love.
Lily offers the most wonderful forum for parents and community to get down to the nitty gritty, awkward, most-often-avoided subject of sex, gender, intimacy and relationships and how to engage in meaningful, ongoing conversations with our children as they mature.
With thoroughly researched material, skilful sensitivity and a healthy sense of humour, she creates a safe respectful arena in which to ask any and all questions you might have.
She empowers the participants to be self-referenced, authentic, honest and appropriate to the moment. She addresses the increasing challenges of inappropriate early exposure to sexuality through social media, a hyper-sexualised image-conscious culture and the influence of alcohol, drugs and the pressure of peers to ‘belong’.
This kind of forum is so desperately needed to create a healthy culture of openness, trust, curiosity and informed consent and I highly recommend Lily’s work to any parents and educators looking for practical platform to begin.Nirado Griffin
How can YOU
change the future
for our young people?
This Forum is part of an ESSENTIAL conversation we need to be having with our children regarding their sexuality.
Consider, do you want to be the one to share with them about healthy sexuality or do you want them to get it from the internet?
Why it is never too early to start the conversation
Waiting until your child hits high school to start this conversation is too late. Messages of body positivity, consent, informed decision making & relationship skills can be shared from the time your child is born.

Our focus is to create a culture of sexual abuse prevention.
This can be achieved by nurturing a sex positive attitude and by creating spaces where education and robust dialogue can occur.
Through fun and engaging parenting workshops, challenging and inspiring public forums, and honest and diverse events, we will start a national conversation about what it takes to change the statistics.
We believe parents, care givers, social services & educators are all vital to this change.
We know our young people are desperate for honest answers about sexuality, meaningful conversations about human relationships and practical tools on how to navigate the world though which they move.
They are ready for this to change.
