To all our amazing crowdfunder supporters, thank you! 

With the help of 104 donors (yes, that’s all of you!) and countless more people spreading the word, we successfully raised £5,230 towards our Sex Ed Matters pilot project. This is a whopping £1,230 more than our initial fundraising target - THANK YOU!

These funds will enable us to launch Sex Ed Matters and deliver empowering RSE workshops in UK schools, so that young people have the knowledge and confidence they need to tackle sex and relationship taboos.

So, what’s next..?

With the new school year almost here, we are busy with the final preparations for our talks and workshops. Alongside the crucial RSE school resources that we have been developing for the past few months, our taboo-busting campaign toolkit is almost ready to pilot - we cannot wait to show you what we have been working on!!!

For those of you who pledged for rewards, including our branded tote bag, we will be in touch soon. Watch this space...
