Schools And Youth

Our team of educators and volunteers work within the national guidelines for Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE). We deliver lessons, workshops and assemblies in primary and secondary schools, and youth groups. We aim to give young people the knowledge and confidence to be more able to make informed choices about their own relationships and issues surrounding sexual health.

Our vision is to see young people making wise, healthy relationship and sex choices. We believe that teaching young people about self-worth is key to making these choices. Our classroom sessions, small groups and youth workshops aim to provide fun, interactive ways of looking at topics that really matter to young people. We cover subjects such as body image, consent, forming healthy relationships, social media, sexting and pornography to name but a few. These sessions aim to help young people develop positive self-esteem and promote good emotional, physical and mental wellbeing.

We are proud to belong to acet UK’s Esteem Network as part of continued professional development in the field of RSE.

Prisons

The ‘I Am Project’ is an educational course that we run for women in prison. The course aims to build self-esteem through the creative process and to equip women to make healthy relationship choices.

The ‘I Am Project’ runs in prison under the NHS mental health team and within the Mother and Baby Unit. The course runs over 7–9 weeks and uses craft and games to facilitate discussion and learning. It is run with a maximum of 8 participants and 2 facilitators.

The group nature of the course allows development of social skills as well as personal growth. Many of the women who have completed the course speak of it with great affection.

Previous participants have said:

“It’s built my confidence a lot. I’ve realised that being able to make things is a good way to get my emotions out”.

“For me, writing helped me to say things that I have not said before. I don’t think that I listened to myself or to others until I wrote it down, then I was ‘seeing it’. I think I know more about me now”.

“I’m more assertive. I don’t care what others say. I say ‘no’ and stick to it and don’t feel bad about it. I used to make excuses to myself when giving in to other’s wishes. Now I think it’s not my problem. I’m respecting my needs”.

“The past doesn’t define us, it can shape us but it doesn’t decide who we are”.

The “I Am Project” is a wonderful bonding experience for the participants; and it is a privilege to be able to work with these women through such a course.
