Reducing late diagnosis of HIV

Our team work with communities and professional services, such as substance misuse services to increase knowledge about HIV prevention and provide access to rapid HIV testing.

We support Faith Leaders and Barbershops to promote safer sex messages about STI prevention, testing and increased access to condoms.

 

1:1 Support

Our trained workers are able to offer 1 to 1 support for people who feel that they are putting themselves at risk by the choices that they have made in their relationships and with the sex they choose to have.

We also offer 1 to 1 support for young people who are at risk of pregnancy or poor sexual health outcomes.

Reducing teenage pregnancy

Our trainers have developed an evidence based sex and relationships programme for young people called “Girl Talk Boy Talk” in partnership with Hampshire County Council. This programme includes work on sexual health, contraception, healthy relationships, consent and online safety. This is delivered to single gendered targeted groups of young people in identified schools or community settings.

Our community team offers support to teenage parent services and organisations. This involves sex and relationship education work with this target group to reduce unwanted repeat conceptions and onward referrals to our specialist outreach team for contraception.
