The name REspec is an acronym, it stands for:
RElationships | Safe Places Engaging | Communities
Relationships are core to the work we do. We spend a considerable amount of energy building and maintaining relationships to ensure that the work we do is useful and sustainable.
It is incredibly important for young people and their families to feel safe and have ownership over places in their lives. We endeavor to ensure that all Jabiru REspec spaces are safe for young people and, where appropriate, their families.
No one person exists alone, nor should one piece of work be done in a silo. Jabiru REspec acknowledges that working WITH the community is the most sustainable and positive way of interacting. Engaging young people and their families to the community they connect with is a highly valued practice, whether it be a suburban community, school community, sporting community, or cultural community.
