Sexual Health

We believe that by providing good quality, factual information regarding sexually transmitted infections, contraception choices, and signposting to clinical services, in ways that are appropriate and engaging for the people we work with, we are actively reducing incidences of risk taking behaviour where infections or unplanned pregnancy may occur.

We work in areas and communities where evidence shows the needs are greatest – Young people, and Men who have sex with men (which includes, but not exclusively, men who identify as gay or bisexual), additionally we recognise that good quality sex and relationship education plays an important part in reducing issues for tomorrow’s generation – we work with schools to ensure both teachers and parents are giving appropriate messages at key stages in children’s development.
