  1. Training for professionals

The Sefton Sexual Health Service Promotion Team is available to deliver training specific to your organisation’s needs, or we can deliver a more generic sexual health awareness session. It depends on the training time available and the level of specialisation you wish to train your workers to.

 

  1. Groupwork with young people or other vulnerable and at risk groups

This training can be a one off session (part of a course on health or life skills), or preferably we could deliver a more developmental programme lasting five to six weeks.

 

  1. C Card training

Organisations who wish to participate in the Sefton C Card Scheme (community condom distribution for young people aged between 13 and 19) can get started up by accessing a two hour start up training session. All condoms and supporting resources are supplied.

 

  1. One to One work

The Sefton Sexual Health Promotion Team offer one to one referrals for young people aged under 18 years old (or 25 years old if they have a learning disability) who require additional support in order to make informed choices about their sexual health.

Please note this is not a counselling service.
