In 2014 Brook Young People celebrated 50 years of being the place young people trust for support, advice, education and campaigns about sex, their health and their lives.

Brook Young People is the UK’s largest young people’s sexual health charity. For 50 years, we have been providing sexual health services, support and advice to young people under the age of 25.

Brook exists, according to their charitable objects, to promote the health, particularly sexual health, of young people and those most vulnerable to sexual ill health through providing information, education and outreach, counselling, confidential clinical and medical services, professional advice and training.

The Brook Young People were able to source paint, painting accessories, office furniture and more for a fraction of their true worth helping to save them money.  Brook are using the resources they bought from Recipro to paint their clinic and decorate it in a young person friendly way.

Here is an example of some of the work we have been able to do so far with groups of young people in Wirral. The young people really enjoyed creating these paintings for our clinic.

“Where do I start, amazing shop, I couldn’t believe the amount of stock, choice and big brand names at cheaper than car boot sale prices. It was set out really well, everything is so easy to find and from the moment I arrived the friendly staff were there to help. I didn’t know where to start as I was buying things for work but I didn’t need to worry, the lovely friendly staff helped me loads and I got everything on the list. When I paid I had so much stuff, two of the staff helped me, carried it to my car and packed my boot so there was no spills.

I will be returning and telling everyone about this place as it’s perfect in every way. Thanks again to all the staff who put up with me today and thanks for the amazing fantastic customer service. The shop is much more than what you see online go and check it out! See you all soon and I am really overwhelmed by your kindness today.”
