Soroptimists help Wiltshire schools promote positive relationships

Wednesday 12th September 2018

Swindon Soroptimists have developed a lesson plan and bookmark to help secondary schools in Swindon and Wiltshire promote positive relationships.

Swindon Soroptimists is the local club of an international, volunteer organisation that works through actions and advocacy to improve the lives of women and girls.

One of their ongoing key themes and projects is violence against women and to that end the ‘Love Is / Love Is Not’ bookmarks have been created to highlight the good and bad examples of relationship traits.

The bookmarks have been distributed to all secondary schools in Swindon and Wiltshire and also Women's Aid, Nelson Trust Women's Centre and Wiltshire Police.

Further copies may be requested by schools, for use in PSHE lessons. Please contact Lydia Cardew (Programme Officer, SI Swindon & district) lcardew@yahoo.co.uk  01672 513815 for details of how to obtain more copies.
