Why I'm a PWAP Charity Champion:

The way Australians celebrate set our standards and expectations for our younger adults, adolescents and children and  are important for our society overall.

Our celebrants conduct far too many funerals of young people who have died as the result of, or circumstances related to, excessive alcohol and other drug use

Aims:

P.A.R.T.Y. is a trauma prevention program aimed at young people aged 15-25. Trauma is defined as an injury that has been caused by physical force such as motor vehicle crash, falls and assaults.  P.A.R.T.Y. seeks to give participants a snapshot of the possible traumatic and often preventable consequences of risk-related behaviour that can lead to traumatic injury.

P.A.R.T.Y. participants spend time with staff in the Emergency/Trauma Centre, the Intensive Care Unit, Trauma Wards, and Rehab units of the hospital getting an up front, true to life experience of the impact of trauma on young lives.
