Championing healthy relationships
and sexual wellbeing

We hit the target!

A huge 'thank you' to everyone who took part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge over the past few days. Together we raised a fantastic £15,816! 

All the money raised will be used to support young people through our Esteem project in 2019: promoting positive relationships; challenging unhealthy perspectives about relationships and sex; helping young people increase their sense of self-worth and their confidence; and equipping them to take care of their emotional and sexual health.

Here are our aims for the Esteem project in 2019:

Aim 1: Educate 2000 young people in the London borough of Southwark, to increase their knowledge and confidence about relationships and sexual health by:

  • Partnering with 12 secondary schools in London, building on the strong relationships we already have with their teaching staff and students
  • Providing sessions on topics such as self-esteem, puberty, relationships, consent, teenage pregnancy, STIs and HIV, sexting, pornography and media
  • Gathering feedback, testimonials and case studies to show evidence of changes in knowledge and improvements in health and wellbeing
  • Expanding our curriculum, developing new resources and lesson plans with input from young people and adhering to government guidelines for RSE

Aim 2: Equip and grow our network of external educators to deliver relationships and sex education in their contexts to reach over 21,000 young people by:

  • Providing 5 four-day training courses in our Esteem programme, growing our network to 93 members delivering RSE for 11-18 year olds
  • Accrediting our bespoke programmes with the Open College Network so that more youth practitioners are recognized as experts in specialised RSE delivery
  • Equiping members of our Esteem network with new session plans, resources, bespoke programmes, up-to-date research and statistics about RSE 
  • Providing ongoing support and continued training for our educators to help them overcome any challenges 

Aim 3: Equip 200 parents and carers to effectively support their children in the transition to adulthood by:

  • Collaborating with existing school and church partners to offer 6 workshops that improve parents'/carers' ability to approach RSE positively
  • Providing parents/carers and external educators with resources specially designed to encourage informative and age-appropriate discussions within families
  • Using our expertise to offer online content to parents/carers around how to talk to their children about relationships and sex
  • Actively promoting our workshops so that more parents/carers can gain access to information, practical suggestions, resources, and support
