Our workshops educate adolescents about Puberty & Menstrual cycle while dismantling the taboo & stigma associated with periods, In accordance with the national curriculum and DFE guidelines.
What we do & why we are different!
We have created a workshop model that works to break down the taboo while removing the stigma around the topic, we work to prevent bullying and shaming behaviour, Whilst enabling adolescents to become more confident when dealing with this natural cycle.
Our workshops have been created to celebrate menstruation, eliminate any stigma and get young people talking.
Our workshops are very interactive and engaging unlike conventional schooling this workshop creates a safe space for individuals to open up and discuss the subject.
Research shows that 1 in 5 parents don't speak to their children about puberty & menstruation!
Boys are reaching puberty earlier around age 8-9, but due to lack of understanding & knowledge this is having an affect on their mental health.
1 in 5 girls age 14-21 in the UK have been teased or bullied about their periods, 67% of these girls faced the abuse at school!
66% of girls surveyed missed classes because of their period!
Two in three young girls knew very little- or nothing at all- about periods!
(This study was based on 1000 people)
Is to work with young individuals to bring education and practical solutions to assist them throughout this time.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Brookfield Primary School- Sutton
Rachel and her colleague were excellent with our Year 6 menstrual cycle workshop. They were very well prepared with their resources, activities and informative slides! Sitting in with our pupils, it was lovely to see the engagement and participation of the girls in a welcoming and open space. The resources were age appropriate and the ladies were very good at answering appropriate questions and signalling others to the class teacher if it was too in depth for the workshop. It was very educational and would recommend!
Holy trinity school- Northwood
This workshop is great for both girls & boys it complied with the national curriculum and offered much more than what is expected to be delivered.
There is such a stigma around periods and the boys of course laughed, but once the trainer explained the affects it has the conversation turned to asking more in-depth questions which was great.
I would suggest this workshop as its fun, educational & very interactive using a selection of games, videos & quizzes.
Housing association- London
We were the first clients to receive the virtual workshop, I must say I was slightly concerned it wouldn't be engaging but it was amazing, the information given to the girls gave so much knowledge around puberty & menstrual cycle.
I highly recommend this workshop!
The trainers were great and left the girls feeling empowered.
Thank you NCDP.
