The Northern contraception sexual health & HIV Educational Outreach service

Integrated Contraception, Sexual Health and HIV Service

Clinical and Non Clinical Outreach Service

 

The Outreach team is a multi-disciplinary team, and we offer a range of clinical and non-clinical services for young people under the age of 25 years old, both male and female.

Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) should equip children and young people with the information, skills and values to have safe, fulfilling and enjoyable relationships, and to take responsibility for their sexual health and wellbeing. It should provide young people with quality information about sex and relationships, and support them to develop the skills, confidence and appropriate values framework to make positive choices. SRE can also be used to communicate the benefits of delaying early sexual intercourse, while ensuring that young people develop the skills and knowledge to prevent STI’s and unintended pregnancy when sexual activity does begin.  

It is widely accepted that the effective SRE increases the likelihood that young people will use contraception, enables them to mature, and gives them confidence, knowledge and skills to make informed healthy choices. High quality comprehensive sex and relationship education is essential to improve young people’s sexual and reproductive health.

 

Non-Clinical Education Services

 

Our experienced Education Outreach Worker will provide information, education and training around contraception and sexual health for young people and professionals working with young people. The team has a specific remit around young people who are seldom heard and those young people that are identified as vulnerable. For example, young people at risk of social exclusion or not in mainstream education or employment.

 

We offer comprehensive informal education session to single and mixed gender groups of young people, including 1: 1 and group work. All our sessions aim to be positive, inclusive to all and empowering. The delivery of SRE in informal settings allows opportunity for honest and open discussions and questions, ensuring key messages are delivered using a variety of resources and teaching methods.

 

These are interactive and fun! Covering a vast range of areas including; contraception,sexually transmitted infections, self-esteem and healthy relationships. All sessions are developed to meet the needs of the specific group being worked with.
