"I commission Loudmouth year after year as they work in a unique way to get health information across to children and young people. Their works breaks down barriers and the participants they work with enjoy and actually remember the health messages. The evaluation from staff and young people is always very positive and shows the high regard they have for the educational content of Loudmouth's work. Loudmouth's work is always of a high standard, they always deliver what they say they will deliver, they are totally reliable." Public Health Manager, Dudley MBC

"Umbrella, the new integrated sexual health ‎service for Birmingham and Solihull, commissioned Loudmouth to increase its reach to young people enabling them to educate more 14-19 year-olds through theatre and follow-on workshops. In the first 15 months of Umbrella, Loudmouth have showcased scenarios around healthy relationships, sexually transmitted diseases, consent, control, and coercion to over 20,000 young people, in an engaging and non-judgemental way. The audience relates to the characters during the performance and then has the opportunity to ask the characters questions at the end of the session. At the same time the characters ensure the audience has understood the messages. Clever. A must see!" Fiona Alexander, Umbrella lead for Heath Promotion

“Loudmouth are cost effective as they work with an audience of young people at one time. They are reliable and have a core competence organisation creating and running theatre in education programmes on health issues. Loudmouth created a bespoke piece of work to meet our needs on young people and sexual health and risky behaviours. They have an excellent skill set to work with a range of people including hard to reach young people and their parents and staff. They understand what young people like and need and so can speak the language young people understand. They use drama to present real life drama which young people can interpret into their own situations.” Head of Sexual Health and Teenage Pregnancy Commissioning

"Loudmouth Education & Training were a pleasure to commission. They delivered results, provided prompt and useful feedback and achieved all the outcomes required. They were positive, willing to talk about issues and change or amend approaches to meet our needs and gave an honest picture of how the project was being delivered on the ground. Communication worked well and I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again should the opportunity arise." Gemma Thompson, Housing Strategy Officer, Solihull MBC

"I have commissioned a range of Loudmouth's programmes almost consistently for the last thirteen years, through Teenage Pregnancy Unit and Sexual Health Services, the Healthy Schools Team and Public Health and Community Safety. I have always found the company as a whole professional, reliable and accommodating. With ever dwindling resources both financially and with staff time and availability and pressure on schools to achieve academic results the use of the year in a day programme is both cost effective and outcome positive. Communication with the company is a joy from on the phone or by email or face to face. The effective and timely evaluation clearly demonstrates the positive impacts on young people's lifestyle choices. Loudmouth in Telford and Wrekin have a well respected professional profile." Lyn Stepanian, DAAT Coordinator, Public Health, Telford and Wrekin Council

"I would just like to say a big thank you to Loudmouth for delivering their Helping Hands programme on staying safe in relationships. What a fantastic programme! I was astounded at how focused and attentive the children remained throughout. The actor-facilitators were both very professional and engaged the children in such a meaningful and positive way. It was amazing to see the children's maturity about it all. An intense subject which was pitched perfectly! The workshop was a great way to follow up and worked extremely well and it was clear to see the children had listened and learnt a lot. From booking to delivery Loudmouth has been very professional and well organised. We would not hesitate to work with you again and look forward to doing so in the future. Helen Trueman, Development Coordinator, Grace Mary to Lion Farm Big Local

"Umbrella is the integrated sexual health ‎service for Birmingham and Solihull. Umbrella commissions Loudmouth to help us reach young people across the city using their theatre in education programmes to deliver messages about the importance of sexual health. The results of using Loudmouth have been exceptional. On a “pounds per pupil” basis, Loudmouth represents excellent value for money. Loudmouth offers so much more, their work really does make an impact. Over the last 4 years, Loudmouth has worked with Umbrella to reach tens of thousands of young people with their programmes focusing on important themes such as healthy relationships, sexually transmitted infections, consent, control and coercion. The Loudmouth approach enables key relationship and sexual health messages to be delivered in an engaging and non-judgemental way. And it is making a difference. The Umbrella brand is more widely known across the area of Birmingham and Solihull and there is clear evidence that young people are engaging with the service in increasing numbers. The Loudmouth-Umbrella partnership is a real success story. Natalie Slayman-Broom, Umbrella Business Manager - Sexual Health Services
