An Introduction to Josephine and Jack!


People with learning disabilities have the same right to choices about life and love as the rest of us – the issue is how to make sure that those choices can be made safely and with the information we all need.

That’s why Josephine and Jack exist.

Josephine and Jack are life-size anatomically accurate cloth figures who we use in workshops and one-to-one work with adults and young people with learning disabilities to discuss a range of issues such as health, well-being, relationships, sex and sexuality. We also cover such issues as bereavement, staying safe and keeping fit.

Our workshops are based around the idea that Jack or Josephine has a particular issue that’s concerning them or that they’d like to find out more about - for example: Josephine has been invited to a smear test - or Jack fancies a girl at the club and would like to ask her out on a date. Through storytelling, games and role-play we explore the issue with a small group of participants and come up with a solution or an answer to which we all contributed and which we all understand.

We're fundraising so that we can carry on running our fantastic courses and help more people across the North East of England and further afield!
