PRAISE FOR THE PACK:

"The pack was very well received by students and colleagues. The film engaged students completely, they watched in awed silence as it brought home to them the shocking reality of peer pressure, street grooming and exploitative relationships."
Rotherham - J.B. Year 10 teacher

comment

"The MDL film has really opened peoples' eyes to the realities of CSE and the 'Love or Lies?' pack has enabled them to address these growing issues in more depth, explore relationships, and help young people make happier, safer and healthier choices. I have 20 years experience of working with sexually exploited children and young people and can fully recommend the pack to ALL institutions, agencies and organisations for young people."
Marilyn Haughton, Consultant and Trainer

comment

"The value of the pack, DVD and interactive website is that it enables students to link exploitation with personal relationships and peer pressure. Teachers can use the pack as a stand-alone resource or to stimulate an investigative class project, and is flexible enough to adapt for different ages, contexts and teaching styles. If you want to provoke discussion, this will do it!"
N.O' Connor, Head of Citizenship

comment

"This is an excellent, well-produced package and a very useful multi-agency learning tool. It provides an helpful and detailed introduction to the topic for practitioners and effectively communicates the dangers that a broad demographic of young people are open to."
S.A. Lead Child Protection Officer

comment

"'Love or Lies?' helps schools re-balance Sex and Relationships Education so that 'relationships' receives more attention. The manual contains background information and a range of student and staff activities with well-defined learning outcomes. This is an excellent resource which deserves to be made available to schools and youth settings"
The PSHE Association

comment

This is an important, useful and user-friendly resource. I really like the different sections for KS3 and KS4 as it's a topic that requires thoughtful preparation. I am also aware that sexual exploitation is a hidden threat- victims may be unaware of what may be happening to them and others in these situations. 'Love or Lies?' helps make young people become aware of the dangers and gives them strategies to resist risky peer pressure."
Peter Czajkowski, Head of PSHE
