Description of activity

Peer Education and support around issues of teenage pregnancy. Their intention is to support and empower teenage parents so that young people achieve economic well being and quality of life

Straight Talking employs teenage parents to educate young people about early parenthood; enabling them to make responsible choices. The charity employs and trains teenage parents to deliver a programme in schools to 13-16 year old pupils presenting the realities of early parenthood. Straight Talking was founded in 1998 and responded to the previous Government’s Teenage Pregnancy Strategy which aimed to halve the number of pregnancy and enable 40% of teenage parents to access education and training.
Straight Talking is based in Kingston upon Thames in Surrey. Courses are currently delivered in the London Boroughs of Kingston, Richmond, Hounslow, Barking & Dagenham, Islington, Merton, Brent, Bromley, Wandsworth, Newham and Southwark as well as Birmingham and Surrey.
