We ran a consultation survey asking young people in Highland about their sexual health & relationship education experiences and needs.
The purpose of the survey was mainly to inform the development of our education resources. We had a staggering 1,195 young people from all areas of Highland respond and, due to the substantial amount of information we were able to collate, we decided to publish a report with our findings.
With the Scottish Government having commissioned a new Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood Education (RSHPE) curriculum due to be launched next year, the information we have gathered is currently very relevant and our results support the inclusion of young people in such developments to ensure their needs are met.
Our findings show that young people want to talk about their sexual health more, need access to accurate and relevant information, and would like support from sexual health experts such as Wave where possible.

World AIDS Day is on the 1st December every year and in 2018, we created a pack of activities and ideas that can be used within your lesson plans, youth groups etc.
Designed to help raise awareness, reduce stigma and build support for people affected by HIV and AIDS, the resources are not just for World AIDS Day and can be used all year round.

In June 2019, we took part in a project around tackling domestic abuse in young relationships.
The project was delivered in partnership with Highland & Islands Police Division, AMIS, Nairn Academy, and our SX Scotland & Waverley Care team.
From that project, Nairn Academy S3 students created three fantastic posters, which are available to download and print below. Just click the link under each image to download...
