Generation SunSmart

You may be faced with a lack of parent support in  not reinforcing a sun protection message at home on weekends and failing to role model correct sun protective behaviour. To address a lack of support you may want to:

  • Invite a Cancer Council speaker to attend a parents’ group meeting.
  • Include regular information in parent newsletters.
  • Explaining the importance of sun protection to families with non-English speaking backgroundsProvide pamphlets/information in different languages. Information is available at www.sunsmart.com.au or contact your local Cancer Council
