Sexual Health Week

13-19 SEPTEMBER 2021

SHW 2021 13 – 19 September

CONSENT: Do you get it?

When it comes to sex and relationships, consent is still seen as a “difficult” issue. “Difficult” to teach in the classroom, “difficult” to raise in the workplace and even “difficult” to discuss in our own personal relationships.  

But it shouldn’t be that way. For Sexual Health Week 2021, Brook focussed on normalising conversations about consent and empowering people to talk about it positively and proactively. We want to make sure everyone gets consent! 

Webinar: Consent, Young Men and RSE

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.
