Tender is funded to deliver free Healthy Relationships projects to young people across London. Schools can receive projects of up to 10 hours at no cost. Take a look at the current opportunities listed below to see if one of these projects may be suitable for your school.

Current Funded Opportunities

London Councils 2-day Primary School Project

We have been commissioned by London Councils to deliver our fully funded Healthy Relationships two-day project to one primary school in every borough of London.

Our aim is to help students develop skills for building healthy and respectful relationships. We achieve this through open, creative workshops that explore the healthy and unhealthy aspects of friendships, empowering students to consider their attitudes and behaviour in an age appropriate way. The participants will become Ambassadors for healthy relationships within their school.

During day one students will:

  • Identify what makes healthy and unhealthy friendships and relationships
  • Identify safe and unsafe touch, and learn the NSPCC Underwear Rule
  • Recognise their rights as children and developing human beings

During day two students will:

  • Increase their awareness of harmful practises such as FGM, Forced Marriage and Honour Based Violence
  • Offer appropriate support to their peers and seek support if they need it
  • Present what they have learnt to their peers during an assembly

This project is delivered as part of the London Councils Consortium partnership, working alongside 10 other leading violence prevention organisations.

Project Feedback

"The material was covered in a very sensitive, safe way and led appropriately. I really would have been very happy for all three of my children to have been provided with the opportunity to have been educated and involved in this type of session, especially at primary level where they are within the safety net of staff they feel comfortable with and trust within a small group, compared to how it could be at secondary school. It developed an awareness and knowledge of healthy relationships in a very gentle way, with no ‘loss of innocence’"

London Councils 2-day Secondary School Project

Tender is part of the London Council’s Prevention Consortium; a strategic partnership of eleven leading violence prevention agencies delivering workshops in schools across all 32 London boroughs. We have been commissioned to deliver our fully funded 2-day Healthy Relationships project to three secondary schools in every borough of London. Our aim is to help students develop skills for building healthy and respectful relationships. We achieve this through open, creative workshops that explore the healthy and unhealthy aspects of friendships, empowering students to consider their attitudes and behaviour in an age appropriate way. The participants will become Ambassadors for healthy relationships within their school.

 During the two days students will:

  • Understand the characteristics of healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • Identify the early warning signs of abusive relationships
  • Increase their awareness of harmful practices such as FGM, ‘Honour’ Based Violence and Forced Marriage
  • Advocate respect and equality in their peer groups and communities
  • Develop the skills to offer appropriate support to their peers and seek support if they need it

Project Feedback

"The Tender workshop was a huge success with our students. The fact that they were comfortable to approach challenging material maturely is testament to the sensitivity with which it was presented by the facilitators. They were challenged but also supported and guided. All the students felt they learned a lot from the two days and are now keen to share their learning across the school. They also enjoyed themselves immensely and have said how proud they were to be able to perform in front of their entire year group. For me, the biggest indicator of their engagement was the speed with which they were all at the door waiting for the second day of the workshop to begin. We believe the workshop has kick started a valuable piece of work in school and are grateful to Tender for leading a really useful session."

Assistant Headteacher

"I have discovered more about what is appropriate and what is inappropriate in a relationship and it even gave ways and examples on how to know if you're in an abusive relationship and gives ways to get out of it."

Project participant

"Through games as well as intriguing activities, I have learnt statistics about abuse, types of abuse, how the victim feels, how abuse can affect the future of victims, how victims can be supported and charities that can help."

Islington Relationship Advisors Project

This free project, funded by Islington Council, enables young people in Islington to train as ‘Healthy Relationship Advisors’for their school or setting. Over five 2-hour sessions, students will develop awareness and understanding of the issues surrounding abusive relationships, as well as the skills to support and advise other young people and be advocates for healthy relationships. Following this project, previous Relationship Advisors have gone on to deliver workshops and presentations to their peers.

During the project students will:

  • Explore what makes a healthy/unhealthy relationship, including the additional challenges presented by social media and the cyber-element of modern social life
  • Examine pressures on people to stay in an unhealthy relationship
  • Develop awareness and empathy about the issue
  • Address how best to support and advise someone
  • Develop leadership and problem solving skills

Following the project, each participating school will receive a Relationship Advisor Resource Pack and parent information leaflets to support them in re-running the programme with further cohorts.

Project Feedback

“I have learnt about different types of abuse, more about FGM and forced marriage. The most important thing I have learnt is knowing the signs of abuse and what can be done about it”

Relationship Advisors Project participant, aged 18

“I know the growing process and what healthy/unhealthy relationships are”

Relationship Advisors Project participant, aged 13

"“[Students gained] 1) greater knowledge regarding healthy relationships, 2) greater confidence and ability to discuss the issues raised and 3) cemented knowledge that has been covered this year in PSHE"
