Evaluation of Turn the Page
What we learnt
Our findings provide promising evidence that Turn the Page can help some young people to understand and manage their own sexual behaviour.
Our evidence shows that the Change for Good manual allows practitioners to tailor the programme to each young person’s individual needs.

To improve the evidence base in this area, we’ve carried out research into specific areas. We profiled the characteristics of children under 12, children with a learning difficulty and girls who took part in Turn the Page. This enabled us to learn more about how to support these groups of children appropriately.

We’ve also produced a literature review and report on the characteristics of children and young people who display technology assisted harmful sexual behaviour.
