  • BEST LESSON EVER! I liked the demonstrations, inspiring speeches and that my confidence was boosted.

  • This is one of the most informative & engaging courses I have been on for long time and I have come away with so many ideas to use with young people.

  • I felt encouraged to be more confident in my values and the reasons for them. Good to reflect on my experience of relationship and sex education and think how I would approach it differently.

Situation

Sexting is part of everyday life for almost half of teenagers and 6/10 young people say that pornography’s pervasiveness made growing up difficult. Too many young people still transition into adulthood with inaccurate or incomplete information, leaving them vulnerable. Currently young people aged 15 – 24 experience the highest rates of STIs in the UK. Preventative work is vital to ensure that young people are equipped with the information and skills needed to improve their health and wellbeing.

Solution

We support young people through our education delivery, training of external educators, and equipping of parents. Our interactive sessions with young people encourage critical thinking and empower them to make informed and considered decisions. To ensure more young people receive this high quality education we train & equip youth workers, teachers, churches & organisations in our Esteem programme. We also train parents so they can confidently talk to their children about relationships and sex
