Educational Materials

On this page you can find all of our materials available to purchase.

Fast Forward’s educational materials are young people friendly, engaging and attractive resources. The cartoon format of our leaflets Plastered (alcohol), Wasted (cannabis), Smelly Butts (tobacco) and Buzzed (volatile substances) convey a message in a graphic and humorous form.

Content is developed by young volunteers, with the process of researching the information being a valuable step in their learning. The leaflets are widely used in health, schools and community settings as a useful adjunct to more formal learning materials. Our resources can  reinforce the content of workshops.

Please note our materials are not free. To place an order and for any payment queries, please contact us directly before ordering. Please note, we are a youth work charity and cannot accept returns.
