New young people’s sexual health network

Camden and Islington councils have launched a new joint young people’s sexual health network to support sex and relationship education in schools and offer youth-friendly contraceptive and sexual health services across the two boroughs.

The Camden and Islington Young People’s Sexual Health Network offers contraceptive and sexual health services for young people up to the age of 25, as well as counselling and sex and relationships education support for schools. The three main services are:

  • The Brandon Centre – sex and relationships training for staff working with young people in both boroughs and co-ordination of the condom card scheme (C-Card)
  • Brook – targeted outreach to vulnerable young people
  • Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Pulse clinic – clinical outreach for young people up to age 25 and co-ordination of other services. 

A launch for the network recently took place, featuring performances by young musicians and an appearance by zine publishers Ladies of the Press*.
