Youth Update



Kassy Drummond is Health Promotion Officer, Haemophilia Foundation Australia

HFA has been working with the adventure therapy organisation Purple Soup, on a canoeing trip, scheduled for November this year! This trip will take place over three days, heading along the Murray River between Victoria and New South Wales. This won’t be a normal youth camp. It’s designed to challenge participants and build life skills. Participants will be involved with the planning of the trip and will be required to set goals around what they’d like to achieve during the program.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to apply for Youth Canoe Journey! We are beginning interviews now and applicants will be made aware of the outcome of their applications in the next few weeks.

If you’d like to keep up to date with how things are going as we head towards the trip, we’ll be posting a few updates on Factored In, so keep an eye out for those.

We have new content on Factored In!

Our new transition section is all about managing the changes that occur in your life as you move into adulthood. These are exciting times, so we wanted to make sure you have all the information you need to manage any challenges you might face.

While you’re here I thought I’d let you know that we are refreshing Factored In! The layout of the site will stay the same, but in the coming months you may notice some new content being added, as well as some of the images being refreshed.

If you have any ideas about how Factored In could be improved you might be interested in our Youth Working Group. This group will have a part to play in deciding what new content we create for the site. If you are interested in joining the Working Group, or if you have any suggestions for new content, send us an email at
