Expert chat: Enthusiastic Consent & Conditional Consent (Wed 21st February)

Hey everyone!

On Wednesday 21st Feb at 6.30pm, Sarah our expert, will be running an expert chat about Enthusiastic Consent and Conditional Consent.

Sarah is the co-founder of Scarlet Ladies, a community of women with the aim to destigmatise and normalise the conversation around female sexuality.

Suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after experiencing a number of traumas, including rape, Sarah is reclaiming her body by engaging in bodybuilding and powerlifting. Taking back control of her sexuality, she is currently remaining abstinent. Working and campaigning with other women for the sexual empowerment of women has been an integral part of her healing journey.

Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

  • StepFinder Online Co-Creation (Tuesday 26th September 2017)

    Hey everyone,

    A couple of weeks ago we ran an online co-creation session to help support the development of the revamped StepFinder App.

    We'll be running another online co-creation session, and we are looking for young people aged between 16-25 years to take part in this online co-creation session . The App is currently available on Apple devices, so you must have access to an iPhone, iPad or iPod to take part.

    The online co-creation session will run on:
    Date: Tuesday 26th September 2017
    Time: 8pm to 9.30pm

    Here's a bit of information about StepFinder:
    StepFinder uses the power of mobile to help young people find the nearest support service to them.

    Whether its contraception, homelessness, bereavement, mental health or anything else, StepFinder can pin-point local services and help you navigate to them using your phone.



    If you're interested in taking part or have any questions at all, comment down below or send us a PM and we'll be in touch with further information about this session.

    All the best,

    - Aife
