Together for Children’s Relationship, Sex and Education Service
Our Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) service works with young people aged 8 to 18 and can be offered to young people with special educational needs and disabilities up to the age of 25.
The purpose of the RSHE service is to help children and young people to develop the vital skills to make informed decisions about their sexual health, wellbeing, self-esteem and relationships. It can also help to build resilience and gain an understand of when and how to ask for support.
Being a young person can be tough. Through our innovative clinical services, digital support, tailored counselling and inspiring relationships and sex education, young people are able to take charge of their sexual health and wellbeing.
We demand better for young people. We fight for young people’s rights, amplify their voice and campaign to protect their specialist services. By changing perceptions and developing skills, we give professionals the knowledge and confidence to deliver the quality services that young people need and deserve.

The PSHE Association (formally the PSHE Subject Association)
Our mission is to raise the status, quality and impact of PSHE education so that all children and young people benefit. And we’ve enjoyed success in this area – our campaigning helped make Relationships Education, RSE and Health Education (RSHE) compulsory in September 2020.

CEOP is a law enforcement agency and is here to help keep children and young people safe from sexual abuse and grooming online. We help thousands of children and young people every year who have been in a similar situation to you. CEOP are unable to respond to reports about bullying, fake accounts or account hacking.
We are here to help and give you advice, and you can make a report directly to us if you are worried about online sexual abuse or something has happened online which has made you feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone you know in real life, or someone you have only ever met online.
