The goal of www.ISupportSexEducation.com is to encourage widespread support for better relationships and sex education (RSE) and keep it on the radar of change-makers both in the UK and abroad. It should also provide a space for sex educators and campaigners to have their say on why sex education is important and participate in actions which will reinforce the work already done to further secure the state of RSE.
Whilst sex education is now compulsory in England with a new curriculum coming into force in 2020, this curriculum still needs improvement in order to make it as inclusive and comprehensive as it needs to be. We also want to see the government supporting parents/guardians/carers to have healthy conversations about relationships and sex at home.
The website is a space to raise awareness of the importance of relationships and sex education in guaranteeing equality for all and preventing discrimination based on gender, sexuality, ability, race, religion or anything else that makes us unique.
