Our Cyber Safety workshops program compliments our Mobile Support program through engaging workshops that offer peer education on privacy, security and navigating online relationships, delivered in conjunction with a pro-social mentoring opportunity.

We believe it is our responsibility to ensure young people are properly equipped to navigate the online world with skill and confidence, and that this is necessary to ensure they get the full benefit from their device. 

We work directly with our community partners to design and host custom workshops that meet the digital needs of their clients, and offer a variety of social activities including bowling, rock-climbing, and virtual reality. For our youth justice community partners, most workshops are completely free. 


These are our pilot programs - currently in prototype stage.

We are testing them out for impact and community demand in the real world.


Digital Wellbeing workshops further develop cyber skills to consider the physical and emotional impact of phone use, and ask the participants to reflect on how often they use their device and how it impacts them in the short and long term. We consider what is 'digital wellness', and how can we build it into our daily life?

We cover topics such as smartphone and technology addictions, and how too much use can impact sleep and performance at school and other daily activities. 

Digital Wellbeing workshops are suited to school or other youth groups who want to improve their digital wellbeing while learning about the use of technology across the social impact sector, and supporting a local charitable group. 


The Court Breakfast Program will seek to enhance young people's attendance and engagement in the courtroom environment through provision of a nutritious breakfast
at court. 

This program is modelled on similar food relief programs delivered in schools, and is designed to support young people as well as their families to attend court and engage with the staff and the judicial process to
improve long term outcomes.

This project is currently undertaking a 6-month trial. 


The Smart Casual Clothing Bank is a bank of age-appropriate clothing available for young people to borrow to support their professional presentation at important events - primarily for court appearances but also for job or school interviews.  

Outcomes associated with this project will include improved
empowerment of young people to manage their presentation at court and communicate to the court and magistrate their intentions for improved behavioural outcomes, as well as improved presentation and associated opportunities for young people at school, job or volunteering interviews.

The wardrobe for this program has been provided by the non-profit organisation Thread Together. Through this collaboration, HI can provide young people with new, fashionable and age-appropriate clothing while also supporting Thread Together in diverting excess clothing from landfill.

This project will undertake a six-month trial later this year.
