From primetime TV to online gaming young people are bombarded by sexualised images on a daily basis from a young age. Additionally, it’s been reported that online porn consumption has rocketed during lockdown, making high quality relationship and sex education (RSE) even more important.

With a perfect blend of theory and practical skills that you can use with young people.
