We have always worked with a wide network of international thought leaders and specialists in PSHE, SRE and CSE. We believe that, through sharing our ideas and constructive collaboration, we jointly progress the thinking and development of these topics.

We work especially closely with a small team of acknowledged experts. They help us design, build and deliver the content we use in our events and programmes. Each member of the team brings unique strengths and competencies;  one thing they all share is a deep passion for Comprehensive Sexuality Education and the beneficial impact it can bring to the lives of children and young people.
