Get Real

Get Real

Young people need high quality Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) so they can make wise and informed choices. Through ‘Get Real’ we aim to see young people having the skills and knowledge to make positive choices about their future relationships.

“Despite previous education I now feel more confident and informed about my own views and ability to make decisions.”

We do this through offering SRE sessions, seminars and courses within schools or other settings; ranging from youth groups to universities. We believe all age ranges can benefit from good quality SRE. We cover a wide variety of topics from sexually transmitted infections and contraception to body image and self-esteem.

We are also passionate about seeing parents, carers and teachers educated and empowered, in supporting young people in the area of sex and relationships. We fully support the belief of most parents that home and school has a role in SRE. That is why as an organisation we provide teacher, parent and carer seminars in a variety of areas to help teachers enhance teacher-led sex and relationship education, as well as empowering parents/carers in discussing these challenging topics with their young people.

‘Get Real’ brings together the expertise of experienced youth workers and qualified health professionals with a range of experience in women’s health, sexual health, unplanned pregnancy and post abortion support, sexual assault, pornography and youth work to bring you tailor made sessions and courses specific to the needs of your group.

“The team have the right balance; they are informative and add a sense of fun to learning.
The programme is extremely professional and they tailor make it for the needs of the students.
We would highly recommend them.”

Linking Lives

Linking Lives

Linking Lives is a befriending service that offers companionship to lonely and isolated older people in our community. Our volunteers regularly visit individuals in their own home for a chat, to share in an interest or hobby, or perhaps to accompany them on a short trip out.

According to Age UK, Wavertree ranks in the top 60 (out of 32,000) most lonely areas for older people in the UK. A regular visit from a friend can help to remind them that they matter. Ensuring people have regular personal contact has also been proven to improve their health and general wellbeing.

Volunteer visits improve the quality of life for isolated older people by increasing opportunities for engagement in the community, leading to improved mental health and increased confidence and self-esteem. Volunteers also benefit from learning about the experiences of those from other generations. In the first year we expect to recruit 10 volunteers to visit up to 20 older people on a weekly basis.

If you’d like to know more about volunteering or making referrals please email



Streetwise provides practical and emotional support to street sex workers including the provision of tea, coffee, sandwiches, toiletries and condoms. We aim to provide a safe place for the workers to come and discuss concerns or fears. They can also request a volunteer to support them when attending official meetings such as court cases.

"The service you carry out is much appreciated, much needed and much thought about.

You give constant care and treat us with respect. You’re there for all our needs even though you don’t have to be."


Every Friday and Saturday night between 9pm and midnight, our volunteers are on hand to provide support to the women, men and transgender working around Sheil Road. We have up to 40 volunteers who have a wide range of jobs, from students to solicitors, and mum's to medical practitioners.

Providing Rehabilitation

We support NGO’s working with destitute women in and around the North Kivu province. Many of them are widowed due to the violence and many have had to flee their homes due to the constant threat from rebel groups. Our support helps to provide a safe place for them to learn new skills, gain access to micro finance loans and most importantly to find friendship.

supporting displaced people

Violence in the DRC has displaced over 3 million people and many of these are now living in extreme poverty, especially in the North-East of the country. We have been able to purchase land, crops and livestock for the displaced people to make a living.

enhancing Education

We support a primary and secondary school in Butembo called Uamusho. They have over 300 pupils, around 30% of whom are orphans and cannot afford to pay their school fees. The support we provide means that these children can continue with their education, ensures that all the teachers are paid a salary each month and enables the building of safe classrooms.
