Our Relationships and Sexuality service for young people that live in the Greater Manchester area offers discussion groups led by young disabled people aged 13 – 25. No subject is out of bounds as we cover topics such as definining public and private, friendships, relationships, sexual intercourse, contraception, self-esteem and puberty.

We can also be commissioned to deliver 1:1 sessions with young people, deliver sessions to young people in schools and train staff in working with young people on relationships and sexuality. The groups also go out on planned outings.

“May I say that the groups you are running are of great benefit to young people with learning disabilities.  One young man known well to our team accessed, and still is as far as I know, one of your groups. He made tremendous progress and his emotional maturity developed in such a way that he was able to take on board the knowledge and skills being taught in the group. As a result, this changed his behaviour meaning that he could go out into community sessions without the risk of trying to cuddle and touch women.I really do feel that your group is invaluable"
