“I have attended probably well over a hundred courses during my time in a school and now as a youth worker, and there’s always a sense of dread about being sat in a room listening to things you already know, which completely wasn’t the case yesterday. I learned new information in a completely relaxed and friendly setting, and I’ve come away with a wealth of information that will directly affect how I approach this topic with the young people in my sessions, and probably me personally!”

James Dunn, Youth Worker, HIVE Youth Zone

“As part of a quality improvement project, I wanted to look at how we could better support our patients in terms of their sexual health, sexual expression and intimacy needs as they approach having unescorted leave and discharge. I came across Brook training on Eventbrite.
I have now completed the CDS and Practical Tools for RSE training. I found both to have been taught by knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated trainers who were able to adapt the sessions for the audience … Sophie and all those that work for Brook are excellent at what they do and their genuine enthusiasm for their role shines through.”
