We hear a lot about consent these days. But what does it mean to consent to something? In this video, people talk about what consent means – when it comes to sex, and when it comes to other things in life.
Consent is the foundation of healthy partnered sexuality. Knowing that everyone is an enthusiastic, informed, freely-given ‘yes’ to a sexual activity before it happens is mandatory.
It’s also valuable for staff and families to think about how we can model consent in our daily interactions with the people we support so that they are not getting mixed messages from us.
