Research dossier for Sexperience
Our main campaign aim is for Schools across London to open sex advice clinics within their grounds. As many of you are aware the UK has one of the highest rates of Teenage pregnancies and STI's/STD's. We feel that it is about time younger people learnt about the Birds and Bees before getting themselves into trouble!
So why did we chose Sexual Health?
ly thought between us girls that there simply isn't enough advice given out to young people in schools. We felt that if younger girls were fully aware of the risks of having sex from a young age, perhaps this would stop them falling pregnant. I interviewd several different girls who had fallen pregnant at a young age from (14-16) and shockingly most of them regretted that they had fallen pregnant. So we decided we wanted to change this.
How did we go about it?
Well first of all we all agreed openly that our main aim is to get schools in Enfield/London to open sex advice clinics within their grounds. We then contacted schools, interviewed young girls, did plenty of online research and then made logos and flyers.
Next we planned our presentation (many thanks to those who showed up) and now currently in talks with the headteacher at a local school to run an assembly.
