What We Do
Straight Talking Peer Education employs teenage mothers and young fathers to run courses in secondary schools about the realities of early parenthood, healthy relationships, child sexual exploitation and sexting.
This work achieves two things:
- It reduces teenage parenthood and sexual exploitation by allowing young people the opportunity to make better-informed life choices.
- It reduces barriers to employment for teenage parents, supporting the development of skills and providing pathways towards economic independence.
What Straight Talking is doing differently is telling young people exactly what it means to be a parent and what practical and real challenges you encounter if you are a teenage parent.
