We are the local branch of Sexpression:UK, a national student-lead volunteering organization which aims to create a relaxed environment for yound people learning about relationships and sex. We try to achieve this by delivering interactive and informal sessions so to facilitate an open dialogue in a way young people feel comfortable with. Sexpression is a volunteering organisation that provides sex education in local schools, promotes sexual awareness and offers a forum for school pupils to ask any question about sex and STIs, in confidence. We deliver informal, fun, student led sex and relationship sessions consisting of a programme of 4 hour long sessions usually delivered on Wednesday afternoons. We are also involved in fundraising events and health promotion across campus, such as raising awareness for HIV and AIDS, and promoting the 'NOT ON' campaign. We are looking for members to join as volunteers to help with fundraising and campaigning and delivering school sessions.
