Education

Resourcing Relationships and Families

We work alongside youth organisations and local secondary schools promoting the areas of sexual health and personal development.

We facilitate and deliver programmes that are aimed specifically at key issues for young people.

Recognising the importance of relevant and age appropriate education for young people, our programmes are developed from needs identified both from within the local school community and from outside youth service providers.

Programme Costs

Education programmes are subject to a small administration charge, which can be discussed when making a booking. Where possible we strive to secure funding to cover programme costs.

Personal Development

Suitable for Year 10 / 11

“Super resources, without a doubt the highlight of my class this year.”

Our Personal Development programmes range from one off lessons to mutiple sessions and can cover a range of topics depending on needs.

Facilitation methods include group participation, visuals, activities and debates.

Our aim isn’t to tell young people what they should do but to give them the information and provide a platform for them to make their own informed choices.

All our sessions can be customised to suit the needs of your school or group.
 
Topics covered in these workshops:
 
• Influences and Identity
• Self Esteem and Self Worth
• Healthy Relationships and Expectations
