Lovewise was started in Newcastle upon Tyne in 2002 by two paediatric doctors and the head teacher of a local secondary school. Together they were becoming increasingly concerned by the number of young people in their clinics and in schools who were suffering from the consequences of damaging relationships and family breakdown.
Seeing the needs of young people, Lovewise has developed resources on the subjects of marriage and sex. These resources encourage them to consider the God-given design of marriage and the wisdom and benefits of keeping sex for marriage.
Different presentations have been prepared for parents, youth groups and schools. All our resources have been written by health professionals with input from parents and teachers, and include books, DVDs and PowerPoint presentations.
We have volunteer presenters who visit youth groups and schools to give presentations. We provide support to parents and church leaders who want to help young people with relationship issues.
