AGENDA: a young people's guide to making positive relationships matter

Secondary

A free online toolkit for young people, focused on building healthy relationships and celebrating diversity.

This resource is also available in Welsh.

Cardiff University, the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, NSPCC Cymru and Welsh Women’s Aid have created AGENDA, a resource designed to promote positive relationships in schools and communities.

It is Wales’ first national guidance for young people on how they can safely and creatively make positive relationships matter.

Its aim is to help young people exercise their rights, be inspired by the stories of others and get started to share and change what matters to them.

There is also another version of AGENDA available for children aged 7 to 11.

Using this resource

This resource is designed for:

  • young people aged 11 and up
  • use with individual children, small groups and whole classes

Please note that because this resource is so extensive, it has not been fully quality-assured by our team. The NSPCC is a trusted source for content with significant expertise in the mental health field, so we have still included it. Before delivering the resource, we would recommend looking through it and assessing whether it is suitable for the students that you work with.
