Our project, Sex Matters Too, has been nominated in the health, social care and wellbeing category of the Third Sector Awards Cymru, taking place on the 16th of February in Cardiff.

Sex Matters Too, supported by The Big Lottery Fund, works in partnership with the Aneurin Bevan Health Board’s sexual health outreach team to train young people aged 16-25 in areas of sexual health, sexual exploitation and healthy relationships.

Young people across South East Wales are seeing their health and wellbeing improved through this innovative approach to peer-led sexual health education. The awards, run by Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) aim to promote, recognise and celebrate the hard work and great achievements of charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises from around the country.

Cara Battrick, Project Coordinator for Sex Matters too said: “It is such an honour for us to be nominated for this award. Sex Matters Too volunteers are delivering workshops on sexual health and relationships across the country, vital work to promote healthy relationships in young people. Thank you to the WCVA for shortlisting us, it is great our project and volunteers are being recognised for their valued contribution.”
