Positive Relationships and Emotional Wellbeing (PREW)

Our PREW programme promotes and supports emotional wellbeing and provides a supported space to safely explore challenging relationship issues and to explore the problems that surround them and the resolutions that are possible.
PREW is a course that:

  • Can be tailored for all ages and circumstances
  • Works equally well in schools, colleges, organisations and businesses
  • Promotes emotional wellbeing – what it is, and how to enhance it - looking after self and others
  • Enables people to develop positive attitudes towards relationships in order to prevent domestic abuse and sexual violence.
  • Is interactive and creative, using various film clips, activities and discussion.


Peer Support Programme (PSP)

PSP provides people with information and an understanding of peer support. The interactive style of delivery gives the potential peer supporters the opportunity to explore the peer support role and understand what will be expected of them.

Our PSP programme covers:

  • Encouraging a culture of openness and responsibility across the organisation
  • Recognising respectful, abusive and exploitative relationships and where to get help
  • Improving self-esteem, confidence, problem solving and communication skills
  • Peer Support – what it is, why it is important and how to support it
  • Developing mentoring skills

  • Helps reduce the incidence of negative behaviours
  • Is ASDAN accredited

The programme also includes help for the organisation to develop safe and supported implementation of their preferred peer support programme. This includes follow up support for the subsequent peer supporters.
The programme encourages a participatory and interactive approach to learning, and is delivered through a range of individual and group activities. We recognise that the PSP will should meet the needs of the organisation and that there may be particular issues that need to be addressed. If the organisation has a particular challenge courses can be tailored to meeting this.

Children and Young People’s Healthy Relationships Education in Schools

What we offer

We are determined to see a change in the social norms that facilitate domestic and sexual abuse. Early intervention and education are key to achieving this. Providing high-quality and meaningful healthy relationships education will help ensure a generational reduction of domestic abuse and sexual violence in our society.

Our healthy relationships education programme (HRP) will provide primary and secondary schools in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly with direct delivery of HRP content and a universal offer. This content will align with current and future PHSE and RSE legislation. We want to ensure that all children and young people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have a clear understanding of what constitutes a healthy and respectful relationship, so they can make informed and safe decisions throughout their life.

The packages will be developed in consultation with schools. They are designed to be inclusive of LGBTQAI populations and can be adapted for groups, demographics and minorities.

Types of support

Direct delivery – we will directly provide healthy relationships programmes to primary, secondary and further education establishments in priority communities. Initially this will focus on Cornwall’s ‘Safer Towns’ before being rolled out to other areas. We will ensure effective partnership working with Operation ENCOMPASS. We will also provide tailored programmes for children and young people who are identified as vulnerable and in specialist education establishments. To support direct delivery, we will develop school nurses, safeguarding leads and welfare practitioners in schools and colleges to champion domestic abuse and sexual violence awareness and cascade information to and advise wider staff teams

  • Universal offer – we will provide ‘train the trainer’ programmes to designated individuals to cascade healthy relationships education within their school. This will include specialist consultancy to DASV champions and school staff coupled with specialist age and stage-appropriate resources.
  • Primary schools – there will be separate programmes for KS1 & KS2 children which will cover relationships in their widest sense, focusing on what it means to be safe and who can we be safe with, safe & unsafe secrets and who can you tell. The KS2 programme will develop this further, looking at issues including explorations of arguments and being angry and safer internet use. It is intended to use puppets in this delivery to facilitate different learning needs.
  • Secondary schools – the HRP will cover: consent; nudes; healthy and unhealthy relationships; pornography and resilience. The offer has been previously co-designed by young people and led by a young people’s Steering Group and will promote application/web-based support and advice.
  • Partnership with Brook – we have partnered with Brook to ensure consistency between their Sexual Health education programmes and our Healthy Relationship offer in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
    Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence’ (DASV) Staff training session – (90 mins) – can be run as a training day or a twilight session after school.

              The training is interactive and covers:

  • The Scope of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence including CSE
  • The impact that abuse has on victims and be able to recognise the signs and indicators.
  • The impact it has on children.
