The Josephine and Jack Project
The Josephine and Jack Project provides unique, drama-based workshops exploring health, sexual health and wellbeing to individuals with learning disabilities. Josephine and Jack are life-sized, anatomically accurate cloth figures, used to deliver workshops on appropriate behaviour, body awareness, understanding consent, the right to an acknowledged relationship, use of contraception, pregnancy and being aware of physical changes that may require a doctor’s check-up. Help and support on these topics are highly limited for this group. The Fore’s grant will fund a significant increase of the Project Manager’s hours, enabling J&JP to better meet demand and increase the organisation’s financial sustainability. Areas of focus include developing new courses and cultivating relationships with additional licensees and other delivery partners.
