Research and publications

Digital Intimacies and LGBT+ Youth: Celebration, Equity and Safety (2021)

The Digital Intimacies and LGBT+ Youth report was published in partnership with academics at University of Sussex.

Lessons for the New Era of Mandatory RSE: how Local Authorities are making the links between schools and sexual health services (2020)

This report looks into the ways that LAs support schools with providing RSE; how they support sexual and reproductive health services; and how they support links between schools and sexual health services.

Inside Out. Young people’s health and wellbeing: a response to COVID-19 (2020)

This report, produced in partnership with NYA, examines the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on young people’s health and well-being.

Young Adult Workforce Health & Wellbeing (2018)

16-24 year olds make up 12% of the UK workforce and external pressures on young people’s lives cannot simply be left at the door – as this Young Adult Workforce report demonstrates.

Digital Romance (2017)

This report reveals how digital technology fundamentally shapes the ways in which young people relate to one another in the arena of romance, sex and relationships.

Going Beyond Biology: The RSE that young people want and need (2017)

This report was co-created with young people and includes the ‘Young people’s manifesto: What we want and need from our Relationships and Sex Education’, which outlines their views on the bare minimum they expect from their education.

Operational reports

Quality accounts

A Quality Account is a report about the quality of services offered by healthcare providers – either direct NHS providers or those who are contracted / sub-contracted to offer healthcare services. The reports are published annually by each provider, including the independent sector, and are available to the public.

Quality Accounts are an important way for local NHS services to report on quality and show improvements in the services they deliver to local communities and stakeholders. The quality of the services is measured by looking at client safety, the effectiveness of treatments clients receive, and client feedback about the care provided.

The Department of Health and Social Care requires providers to submit their final Quality Account to the Secretary of State by June 30 each year.

Brook’s Quality Accounts showcase some of our clinical achievements and demonstrate our commitment to client care and safety. They also report on the previous year’s priorities whilst outlining the following year’s priorities.

Safeguarding reports

Our safeguarding reports, which demonstrate Brook’s commitment to keeping young people safe from harm, are presented to comply with the Charity Commission requirements.

Gender pay gap reports

As an employer of 250+ employees, Brook is required by Law to carry out gender pay reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

Ethnicity pay gap reports

Ethnicity pay gap reporting is not mandatory in the UK but Brook believes that it is good practice to record this data in order to be transparent and improve diversity and inclusivity in our work place.

Income and expenditure

Visit the Charity Commission website for information about Brook’s income and expenditure, and details of how the charity spends its money.
