We facilitate workshops with over 1,500 young people a year, giving them the opportunity to consider the realities of unintended pregnancy and to explore the issues pregnancy and abortion present.
‘Thank you for coming and for giving us a talk on abortion. I found it very interesting and it taught me more about abortion than I already knew. Thanks again.’ Year 10 Student
The sessions are presented with impartiality and respect for the young people’s own opinions. Discussion is encouraged as a key means of enabling young people to explore their thoughts and ideas on abortion and unplanned pregnancy more generally.
Issues such as religion, culture and peer pressure are all considered.
Evaluation of the project has demonstrated that schools find the workshops complement their work, and provide their students with a valuable resource.
‘I was very impressed with the depth of subject knowledge and the professionalism with which it was delivered... I know it has been successful because they are still talking about it in the corridors. Well done and thank you!’Teacher, Lambeth School
Talk About Choice works within government guidance on Sex and Relationships Education and models the best practice laid out in the Best Practice Toolkit for Abortion Education
Talk About Choice is at the heart of Education For Choice’s work. The experience we gain from working daily with young people is shared with health and education professionals through our training programme and beyond that, through our advocacy on abortion education.
Please note, Talk About Choice is only available in the Greater London area. If you are a teacher, parent or young person, and would like Talk About Choice to visit your school, please click here.
