Brook blog

The voice of young people’s sexual health and wellbeing.

Changing attitudes. Challenging prejudices. Championing equality.

We launched the Brook blog in September 2019 to shout louder about the sexual health and rights of young people.

It is a platform for Brook staff, sector colleagues and young activists to voice their thoughts on key topics impacting young people’s sexual and emotional wellbeing.
