OUTSPOKEN DIRECTORS

We are a buttoned-up Brit and an upfront American who have joined forces to help parents give their children the resilience and self-knowledge to navigate the digital world. 

We are in it along with other parents: Sophie Manning (left) is the mother of two young children and Leah Jewett (right) has a teenage daughter and son.

Together we’ve come up with some tips we wish we’d had and the resources we still need to tackle difficult subjects with our kids.

“We’re all trying to figure out how to talk to our children about this tricky stuff, and I’m turning to Outspoken Sex Ed for a few tips”

Mother Pukka founder Anna Whitehouse

“The best support and protection parents can offer young people is ensuring they have all the information they need to make decisions about their health, body, sexual exploration and emotions – which is what Outspoken is all about”

Sara Pascoe – Comedian, author and member of Outspoken Advisory Board

”As a parent I felt enabled and empowered to have age-and-stage appropriate conversations with my children after the Outspoken Sex Ed workshop. This suddenly felt like a challenge I could take on with gusto rather than shying away from”

Dr Pooky Knightsmith –Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition vice chair & education lead

“This is wonderful work and very much needed”

Dr Naomi Sutton – NHS Sexual-health Consultant; on E4’s The Sex Clinic 

Incredibly helpful. I feel much better equipped to deal with what I thought would be awkward conversations – actually I don’t think they are at all!
