Brook is the leading young people’s sexual health and wellbeing charity. They provide free and confidential services for almost 250,000 young people in the UK every year, as well as sex and relationships education (SRE) and training in a range of settings.
Sending their staff to run Brook education sessions with young people in schools can be very effective. However, many schools and organisations struggle to find funding to provide this opportunity to young people.
Brook wanted to increase their overall reach of school support, ensure a consistent message was being delivered to all sites, whilst further promote and build awareness of their organisation.
Taking about sex and relationships with young people is not always easy. Staff running sessions in schools often discovered that the teachers themselves found the topics embarrassing to discuss and were reluctant to get involved.
It is vital to ensure the conversation comfortably continues outside of these allocated session and therefore Brook saw the need to arm staff with the tools and skills to confidently run these sessions themselves.
