Pause Play Stop

Pause Play Stop is a campaign we created that developed information and resources to be used in schools.

Text says "Sexual Consent: do you get it?" the the pause play and stop symbols.

The Pause Play Stop campaign was developed by our staff and helpline volunteers as a response to the common questions and issues we we’re hearing on the helpline.

The website and leaflets give clear information on what consent is and how we say yes an no in lots of different ways.

We have created training and a presentation that go with the campaign which we have delivered in schools throughout Avon and Somerset.
