BLOODY GOOD
EDUCATION.

WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHY, HOW?

Have you had a really comprehensive education about female sexual and reproductive health? 

 

Us neither. 

 

Nor have the women and menstruators we work with. 

 

That’s why we created Bloody Good Education - a programme that provides free female reproductive health education to asylum seekers, refugees, and people that cannot normally access it. 

We knew that there was an undeniable demand for education around women, girls’ and menstruators’ bodies when several of our team were questioned about our clients' reproductive functions and issues whilst handing out menstrual products at a drop in centre.

 

As well as this, in discussion with gynaecologists and other sexual and reproductive health professionals, we were informed how infrequently the communities of people with whom BGP work visit medical clinics or make appointments with practitioners.

BLOODY GOOD EDUCATION IS AN ATTEMPT TO FILL THIS CRUCIAL GAP, BECAUSE WE THINK THAT EVERYONE DESERVES COMPREHENSIVE, FREE INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR BODIES. 

Bloody Good Education sessions are monthly, and take place in some of the different drop-in centres that we currently operate based in London, such as West London Welcome in Hammersmith and Women For Refugee Women in Old Street.

 

 Sessions typically last around an hour or so, with time for a Q&A, and take a strong co-creation approach to both content and delivery style. We ask participants at the beginning of each session what they want to learn and tailor information accordingly. All sessions are facilitated by qualified gynaecologists and sexual health professionals, as well as education volunteers that support on a whole host of activities - from ensuring feedback is gathered, assisting on preparation logistics, and generally just being babe.
