LMK is an education charity working with young people to prevent domestic violence, relationship abuse and sexual assault.
We empower young people to speak out, seek support, navigate ending an unhealthy relationship or help a friend.
Since launching in spring
schools and organisations we partner with
said we changed their opinion of what is ‘healthy’ and ‘unhealthy’ behaviour
knew how to get help if they experience abuse in a relationship
schools and community groups
hours of free RSE
We were back at @langdon_park yesterday to deliver module 2 of our #10Signs programme. It was brilliant to see how much the young people had taken on board from module 1 and the thoughtful discussions as they delved deeper into the signs, AND wonderful respect for each other
As the day draws to an end we wish to thank all those that supported us in making our RSHE Drop Down Day informative and engaging for our young people. @BrookCharity @LMKletmeknow @ConnectFutures @TowerHamletsVPC @StGilesTrust
🙌 We love taking part in RSHE and PSHE days. It’s brilliant to see schools organising these days for their students, and to work alongside lots of other amazing organisations. See you tomorrow @langdon_park 👋
Tuesday 28th March 2023, our second RSHE Drop Down Day of the academic year, looking forward to welcoming our guests @BrookCharity @LMKletmeknow @ConnectFutures @StGilesTrust @TheMessageTrust @TowerHamletsVPC
Gillian Keegan urged to not let culture wars weaken sex education
Organisations write to education secretary ahead of review, saying England’s schools have vital role in tackling misogyny and abuse
Relationships & Sex Education is crucial to challenge the attitudes that tolerate violence against women.
We’ve joined 50+ organisations calling on @GillianKeegan @educationgovuk to equip schools to deliver quality RSHE guided by what young people need http://bit.ly/3LNSTJx
7. If you have any other suggestions or you want to share you experience with us, please do 🤍
6. Do ask your friends if there is anything you can do to support them during Ramadan and respect what they tell you. Be mindful that people will have different needs and everyone’s connection to their faith is different.
5. Don’t make comments about dieting or weight loss in relation to fasting. Fasting is a spiritual practice, and this type of comment can be hurtful and disrespectful. It can also be triggering in any circumstance.
4. Don’t ask someone why they are not fasting. There are lots of reasons why someone might not fast during Ramadan, including health reasons.
3. Do be considerate of your friends who are fasting. They may be more tired and less active than usual – be supportive and don’t pressurise them to do more than they can.
2. Don’t act with shock or disbelief about the practice of fasting. You might feel like you’re showing empathy, but it’s often unhelpful and othering.
1. Do find out more about Ramadan. Your friend may be happy to answer a few questions but try to find out more about Ramadan yourself so you understand its significance for your Muslim friends.
☪️ Ramadan Mubarak to all those celebrating. Wishing you peace and joy during this holy month.
If you’re non-Muslim or you don’t observe Ramadan, you can still appreciate the significance of this holy month for those who do, and be there to support them 🤍 🧵

Thanks so much to Langdon Park School for having us last week, to all the young people for their engagement, and especially to these three students for their feedback (we didn’t tell them to say the bit at the end – honest! ❤️)
One of the best bits of our work is hearing feedback from the young people who’ve attended our workshops – when we know they’ve got it, and they’re going to use their new skills 👌
6 days left to apply! We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
🚨Big news! We are recruiting our first CEO! We’re looking for someone to build on the work of our co-founders, to take LMK from a high-performing start-up, to an established, influential organisation in the sector. Could this be you or someone you know? 1/5
Three of LMK’s Youth Advisory Board joined hundreds of young people from across London at last week’s #LDNHopeHack by @LDN_VRU @MayorofLondon
Young people were centred 🙌, given a platform to share their views & come up with solutions to the big issues facing their generation.
We’re proud to be a part of this amazing youth-led event. Check out the work of @LDN_VRU
