Our vision and values

Sexpression:UK aims for a society in which young people are able to access reliable information about relationships, sex and sexuality; where youth are free from STIs, and unwanted pregnancy; and where they are empowered to make individual, informed decisions regarding their bodies and their health.

School building


Because university students are closer in age to the young people than their teachers and parents our near-peer teaching encourages young people to participate.



Young people's individual beliefs are respected, and our teaching helps young people to act on them. We also encourage young people to respect the beliefs of others.



Young people learn best and are more likely to make informed decisions about sex and relationships if they participate in discussions rather than being lectured.



Young people should be informed about all aspects of their sexual and reproductive health.

20 Years of better RSHE

In November 2000, University College London held an ‘exploratory' sex education workshop for medical students. This led to the original idea of Sexpression:UK and the formation of a committee along with a branch in Edinburgh. Since then Sexpression:UK has grown to more than twenty branches in universities across country in the United Kingdom.
