We work with schools to tackle peer-on-peer sexual violence through education.
Our workshops help clarify the grey areas around sexual consent and encourage reflection, compassion and healthy dialogue amongst peers. Addressing the urgent need highlighted by recent events including Everyone’s Invited and the tragic death of Sarah Everard, we work with pupils aged 13+ and seek to empower everyone we meet to recognise that they too have a part to play in creating a society free from sexual violence.
Our bespoke options allow us to respond to the unique needs of your educational institution and can include anonymous surveys, follow-up listening sessions and workshops covering pornography.
97% of students report they now have a clearer understanding of consent.
