SHW 2019: Continuing the conversation

Thank you so much to all our 2019 Sexual Health Week supporters. We learned so much from our campaign on the topic of relationships, sex and disability.

Following the campaign, we identified a gap in our own RSE resources for SEND young people and as part of our commitment to challenging inequality, we have developed a new accredited training package for professionals.
