New 250k website for young adults – now available

New 250K young adult website 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.

What’s new?

  • 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.

New 250k for teens

New 250K YA

Now that the websites have been completed, we will be progressing 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.

National Allergy Strategy Rationale

Allergic diseases have become an increasingly important chronic disease and public health issue in Australia and other developed countries over the last two decades, contributing to increased demand for medical services, significant economic cost of care and reduced quality of life of people with allergic diseases and their carers.
