A North East charity has taken a prize at the National Diversity Awards.

The Josephine and Jack Project runs relationship and sex education workshops for people with learning disabilities triumphed in the Community Organisation Award for Disability category. Its managers were presented with the prize last night at a ceremony in Liverpool.

This organisation provides interactive sessions, using two life-sized, anatomically accurate cloth characters to make the message more accessible.

The characters take centre stage during interactive, creative education sessions run by and for people with learning disabilities.

ITV live-streamed the awards ceremony, which can be watched in full here.
