The Children’s Commissioner for England has published an innovative and much-needed guide for parents and carers to have discussions with their children about sexual harassment.
The guide, which is in part built upon the experiences and voices of young people, provides adults with practical advice on how to navigate discussions with their own children.

If you're aged between 11 - 19 and want confidential, friendly, helpful advice, text a school nurse on 07507 333 351.

Be Well Gloucestershire is a year-long local campaign to help when stress, anxiety, isolation and other challenges become hard to deal with. We want to encourage anyone who is having a hard time in the county to access the support that is available and break the social stigma attached to mental ill-health.

This site is the start of what will be a central hub for anyone who needs help or support for themselves or a loved one. Working alongside local organisations, charities and communities, we will develop information and resources to enable more people who live in the county to talk openly about their wellbeing and access mental health and wellbeing support.

50 years on 

50 years on from the first Pride march in the UK, we're reflecting on how the brave protesters that day paved the way for a dramatic turnaround in British social attitudes towards LGBTQ+ people.

Today, we publish new research that shows the UK public is four times more likely to feel positively towards LGBT people than they are negatively. Homo/bi/transphobia is now restricted to a tiny, intolerant minority.

 Our new report gives us a snapshot of the UK today; a country that is proud to be inclusive, whose public embrace and support their LGBTQ+ neighbours, colleagues, friends and family.

Jessie and Friends

The website is based on the three-episode Jessie & Friends animated series, which aims to equip 4-7 year olds with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to stay safer online. It is intended to be used by 4-7 year olds alongside their parents and carers, or within education settings as a learning tool.

The new interactive website encourages 4-7s to engage safely online by helping them to recognise worrying, upsetting or scary situations and reinforcing the key message that they should ‘Tell A Grown Up’ in these instances.

The guide aims to support parents and carers in navigating the website alongside their child. It provides information on the background and purpose of the website, in addition to information about each of the games and conversation starters to use with children. The guide is available for you to download and share with parent and carer networks within your setting.
