What Can You Do
If you believe that high quality, well rounded Relationship and Sex Education in schools is vitally important to young people then you should let your parents and teachers know how you feel.
Relationship and Sex Education (SRE) is currently not statutory in schools. This means that there is no required standard for your school to maintain like there is with maths or English. As a result the quality of education you receive can vary greatly depending on which school you go to. If you believe that SRE should be standardised for all students and it should be compulsory to provide a good standard of Relationships and Sex education in all schools, let us know in the form below. Alternatively, contact your local MP.
Everyone can be part of changing the unfair and negative stereotypes that teenage parents have to endure. Try not to judge a young parent without knowing their personal situation. Try to find out about the challenges teenage parents face and try to be understanding and supportive, they have a difficult job to do.
Also, try not to pass around false information about sex and pregnancy as this can be harmful. Choose to be a source of good information and advice to others by directing them to expert sources of information. Good ones to suggest are the charity Brook —which can be contacted online or by phone—a GP, or your school nurse.
If you really want to get involved in what we do, you can volunteer or fundraise for us. Get in touch by filling in the form below and we will be in touch.
Only get pregnant if you are old enough and you are responsible, and have money.
