Brook BiteSize is a half day or full day information event. Based on BiteSize zones, it can cover sexual health and relationships, CSE violence and abuse, and health and wellbeing. This interactive high energy event works with up to 100 young people at a time, making it ideally suited to secondary schools and colleges.

Each zone consists of innovative board games or activities that have been designed to encourage young people to learn through participation.
