Project Jiwsi, funded by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, has been running since 2002 with Mel at the reins since its inception, first with FPA and now with Cwmni Addysg Rhyw.

The project provides needs led, co-produced, developmental programmes of relationships and sex education (RSE) to vulnerable children and young people aged up to 25 years old.

The project also delivers training programmes for BCUHB and partner organisation staff to develop their confidence and skills in working with vulnerable young people and sexual health. We also run a RSE practitioners' network; The Jiwsi Network, for professionals across North Wales to share and develop their RSE practice. As part of this we hold free practice development seminars to develop knowledge, skills, confidence and ongoing networking and informal support structures.
