Parent Advice Sheets
The UK’s leading sexual health charity FPA, on behalf of the All Wales Sexual Health Network, has produced two new pieces of guidance for professionals and parents who are helping young people understand the important topic of sex and relationships.
The parents’ advice sheets are written by Speakeasy. Speakeasy is a free FPA course that gives parents and carers the skills and information to talk to their children about growing up, relationships and sex. Using the experience gained from working with over 10,000 parents, the advice sheets are packed with useful help, tips and pointers on talking about puberty, sex and relationships. From toddlers to teenagers, any Welsh parent will find them helpful in tackling this tricky subject.
, Parenting and Community Project Manager, who produced the advice sheets said; “Knowing that Speakeasy has been a long-running and successfully evaluated project for parents gives us confidence that the downloadable resources produced will be of great benefit to parents in Wales
, All Wales Sexual Health Network co-ordinator said; “These pieces of work form part of the Sexual Health and Wellbeing Action Plan for Wales 2010 -2015 and will prove important in aiding conversations about sexual health and relationships with young people across Wales.
“I am grateful to the FPA
for developing this work and welcome any feedback from stakeholders on the guidance produced.”
