Information for teens and young adults

The website - ‘250K – A hub for the 250,000 young Australians living with severe allergies’ - aims to provide age-appropriate information and resources to assist young people who are living with severe allergies, and to help them to feel more connected with other teens and young adults going through similar experiences in a fun but informative way.

With a fun and cutting-edge look and feel, the 250K website was designed by young people for young people. It has a strong focus on interactivity and functions more like an App, allowing young people to share information with their friends in novel ways, such as using avatars. Importantly, it allows young people to share their thoughts on a range of topics anonymously. The 250K website is also supported by a slide set that schools will be able to access to help increase awareness about severe allergies.

This project has received funding from the Australian Government.
