Where we work
Educate, prevent, employ.
We predominantly work in London boroughs with high rates of teenage pregnancy. Nationally Straight Talking has worked in the Home Counties, West Midlands, Buckinghamshire, Somerset, Greater Manchester, Colchester & Tendering.
Every year our targeted work is informed by the Office of National Statistics annual reports on conception rates in England*. Focusing on areas with high teenage conception and high under 18 abortion rates, consideration is also given to high deprivation indices and lower than average educational attainment, as well as areas with a large number of pupils eligible and claiming free school meals - all risk indicators for high teenage pregnancy rates.
