Healthy lives for young people

Sexual Behaviours Traffic Light Tool

Brook’s nationally recognised Sexual Behaviours Traffic Light Tool training provides a highly visible, multi-agency response that helps professionals to identify, understand and respond appropriately to sexual behaviours in young people.

The tool and accompanying training provide professionals within and across organisations with a framework for identifying whether behaviour is part of healthy development or if it is a cause for concern. It will also provide guidance on when to safeguard and/or signpost to internal or external support. 

The tool was originally developed by the Australian organisation True Relationships & Reproductive Health and was adapted for use in the UK by Brook.

Please note: the Sexual Behaviours Traffic Light Tool will be undergoing review and update in 2020
