NEW: ‘Love or Lies?’ pack reviewed by the PSHE Association
Some of the excellent comments we received:
“Love or Lies?’ helps schools re-balance Sex and Relationships Education so that ‘relationships’ receives more attention. The manual contains background information and a range of student and staff activities with well-defined learning outcomes”
“Intended for KS3 and KS4 students in schools or other settings, the activities are very much about active learning and cover a variety of topics”
“This is an excellent resource which deserves to be made available to schools and youth settings“

About Eyes Open Creative:
We campaign, raise awareness and produce pioneering education resources to tackle social injustices and make positive social change. We do this by producing high quality digital content, such as short films, animations and by using music to communicate to our audiences in an empowering, non-judgemental way. We combine practitioner experience with expertise in digital communication to create impactful, cutting edge educational resources for adults and young people.
What makes us different?
Our activities differ from those of commercial and other not-for-profit organisations in that we engage with young people as intelligent consumers and potential co-creators of the content we make and distribute. Our benchmarks of success are measured in terms of interaction, participation and socially positive outcomes.
Who do we support?
Our audiences are young people, teachers and front line practitioners working with/on behalf of young people and children (youth workers, child protection officers and members of like-minded organisations). We provide exciting resources and front line training to those practitioners who share our create, inspire & change philosophy.
