What is ‘The Right to Consent’ in NSW Today?

Raise your awareness and increase your understanding of the current legal and practice implications of The ‘Right to Consent’ and ‘Consent in Sex’ Consent is not a ‘one shot deal’ and anyone can revoke consent at any time.

Consent is an individual’s free agreement to participate in an activity. Consent can only be given if it is free and voluntary, without fear, coercion, intimidation, or anything else that inhibits free agreement (Australian Law Reform Commission, 2010; Powell, 2010). With respect to Consent in Sex, it can be hard to know if the person you’re with wants to be more intimate with you or not. It is not enough to say that an individual consented just because they did not refuse or resist.

In this one-day Forum:

  • Increase your knowledge of current or emerging laws, principles, and practice of ‘The Right to Consent’ or ‘Consent in Sex’;
  • Gain information about non-Government and Government Services & Agencies that can assist your Organisation to understand The Right to Consent or Consent in Intimate Relationships relevant to your clients, and
  • Develop your confidence in talking to your clients about their rights to consent, or withdraw consent, in intimate relationships.

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
