Work is progressing well with the teen/young adult project.  

Focus group sessions to determine the branding and design for the resources has been undertaken and the website development is progressing well. 

A Youth Advisory Group has also been established consisting of several young people who made contact during recruitment for the focus group sessions. 

The teen/young adult resources will be launched on Monday 26th June 2017.

A national survey was conducted during October, which has now closed.

The survey was successful in obtaining the views of young people at risk of anaphylaxis across Australia.

The data is currently being analysed and will inform resource development which will commence early in 2017.

The first resource to be developed will be an inviting, informative website specifically for young people.
