Campaign: To help young people understand what is healthy and unhealthy in a relationship

For young people at school, sex and relationship education normally just means sex education.

There’s a lot of emphasis on teaching the biological side, but not so much on the emotional elements – and these are crucial.

Relationships should be nurturing and loving, and not involve constant critique of what you’re wearing and where you’re going.

With Fixers, I want to help young people spot the signs of unhealthy behaviour early.

Hopefully this will prevent any problems escalating into something more serious.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:

Alice Hall Alisha Morgan
Ashley Reeves Beckii Lammond
Benjamin Hardy-Phillips Beth Pickering
Charlotte Holder Courtney Wyatt
Ellie Christopher Eloise Chaplin
Georgina Ellis Jess Devine
Jess Knight Justice Chillingworth
Kayleigh Knight Maria Francis
Matthew Fisher Rhyann Watton
Sam Atherton Sam Foulder-Hughes
Shannon Bowden

September 2014
I've had some really positive feedback to my campaign that went out on ITV News West Country. You can see these comments below!

Chlo: 'Thanks for positing it! The film is really powerful and well put together. I really hope it helps make a difference!'

Jodie: 'That was amazing! Well done to her, it's so true everything she was saying. It made me stop and think.'

 

My campaign was also featured in the Western Gazette. You can click on the image below to read the article.
