John struggles to engage with people because of his background and disability. He was referred to SECCA for help with setting boundaries and developing skills to build healthy relationships.
Sexuality, Relationships and Your Rights (SRAYR), is a picture based, simple English resource for teaching people about their rights and the law related to their body, health, relationships and sexuality.
Research shows that people with disabilities are at more risk of both being victims of sexual crimes and, often accidentally, perpetrators of crimes. From a sex positive and person-centered approach, this resource aims to empower individuals (and the people that support them) to know how the law can support or protect them from these experiences.
WA Version of SRAYR
SECCA released the current version of its landmark SRAYR book in 2019. We saw an overwhelming demand for a fresh resource that addressed sensitive and critical information relating to sexuality and the law today.
This version incorporates Western Australia’s laws, and the social and language changes that have taken place in the 17 years since the first version was released.
Consultation with many community organisations led to a number of new sections being added including: dating, sex work, internet safety, sexting, gender identity and pornography. The new resource has hundreds of new illustrations — and has grown from 25 pages to over 100 pages long!

Coming soon – National Versions of SRAYR
Due to the success of the WA version of SRAYR, SECCA received a second government grant to expand the resource across Australia. Each Australian state/territory will have its own version of the resource tailored to its specific laws and needs.
SECCA has collaborated with peak organisations across the country which work in the space of sexuality, disability, justice and advocacy. These bodies have worked generously, providing feedback, discussion and community insight to ensure each local version is the best it can be.

We would love to hear your feedback about your experience using the Sexuality, Relationships and Your Rights resource.
The survey will take about 10–15 minutes to complete and, if possible, should be completed alongside the person you are supporting or have used the resource with. It’s really important for us to hear the opinions of people with disabilities and others who use this resource.
