‘Ur Decision’, a sister site to Respect Yourself , has been nominated for Young People’s Sexual Health Service/Project of the Year at the Brook UK Sexual Health Awards.
The project has been recognised for its fresh approach to helping young people consider all the options when faced with difficult choices, for emphasising the importance of planning ahead, and for equipping them with the vocabulary to negotiate to difficult situations.
The website uses video to explore a range of key issues known to affect young people in Britain, such as ‘sexting’, abuse and setting boundaries.
It engages with visitors by asking them to make character choices at key moments based on what they would do in the same situation – with an option to go back and choose again after they see the outcome.
UR decision was developed by The Respect Yourself Relationship and Sex Education Youth Council. It’s their commitment, expertise and motivation that is behind the success of this new site ( as well as Respect Yourself’s own site). A big thank you for the hard work, it’s nice to know that others notice too !
The Brook UK Sexual Health Awards are open to professionals, educators, volunteers, young people, services, projects, campaigners, journalists, advertisers and scriptwriters whose work makes a difference in the field of sexual health.
The awards will take place at the Hotel Russell in central London on Friday 6 March 2015.
