Check out what our customers are saying about us:

We have commissioned Sue to deliver a number of training sessions in Wirral, to supported living providers, local sexual health services, and parents and carers. The feedback has been resoundingly positive across the board. Her vast knowledge and humour puts people at ease and allows for very open discussion and learning in topic areas which some can find controversial or sensitive. She has helped us to raise awareness of the importance of good sex education and relationships support and has skilled up the local workforce and parents and carers so they are more confident in supporting people in these areas.

Wonderful training which made me think more about the topic area, the resources provided will be very useful, thank you.

Brilliant. There is so much info I can share with the team. I will be using all the resources!

Training was fab! Handouts sent before and were very informative and easy to understand. Trainer ensured understanding

The course was really well planned and organised and the training we received was excellent. We really enjoyed it

I was unsure at the beginning in what to expect but by the end of the course, it all fitted together and I felt 100% better, that I could put a training session together and make it fun and engaging

The course has given me the confidence to support people who have questions about sex and relationships with accurate advice. It has also given me the confidence to plan and implement a sex and relationships course within our community

I found the training very enjoyable and informative, the trainer allowed time for questions and was very inclusive for everyone to become engaged in conversation
