Real Talk (Real Talk International Ltd.) is a not-for-profit charity organisation and was launched in its current form in 2012. Since that time it has grown rapidly throughout Australia and New Zealand to become possibly the most significant provider of values-based presentations on human sexuality in Australasia. Our staff has grown in just a few years from two (founding Directors Paul Ninnes and Kym Keady) to over twenty in 2017.
The rapid growth is in part due to the massive need for the work we do and the challenges young people face in navigating their way through life. While recent cultural developments have seen many new and great opportunities for young people, today's world presents many obstacles and illusions. The sexualisation of people and the trend away from lasting meaningful relationships leads many young people to despair, heartache and physical and mental illness.
Despite this gloomy picture Real Talk has some good news. Some really really good news! There is a better way to live. There is a blueprint inside all of us for healthy self-worth and fulfilling lasting relationships based on love and respect. Young people are thirsty for the truth and when they hear it, they know it. At Real Talk we believe we are experts at communicating this truth and enabling people to move towards it.
Real Talk is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profit Commission. Real Talk is governed by a Board of Directors (Paul Ninnes, Kym Keady, Emma-Lee Ninnes, Patrick Keady) and further supported in 2018 by a Board of Reference.
Real Talk exists in part due to the generous support of the public. Real Talk International Ltd. is a registered charity with the ACNC and registered with the Office of Fair Trading as a fundraising organisation in QLD. Real Talk is also registered as a charitable trust in New Zealand. Please contact us if you would like to discuss supporting us or click here to find out about our real appeal.
