Covid19 Update: 1:1 phone consultations with a specialist sexual health nurse are available – email to arrange. Relationships and sex education topics will be provided to young people through ZOOM upon referral. Young people can access general advice and guidance through our webchat, email or phone.

If you have questions about relationships, sexual health or sexuality, we’re here to help. You can pop in to our Advice Centre or to our health and well-being drop-ins in schools and colleges without making an appointment where you’ll be able to speak to one of our trained workers in confidence, as well as get free condoms, Chlamydia screening and pregnancy testing. We also deliver sexual health advice and support through a specialist Sexual Health Clinic and single sex educational sessions in schools across Hampshire.

Sometimes, relationships can be difficult and painful. If you have been affected by something that has happened in a relationship, or if a relationship has broken down, you might want to contact our counselling service for support.

If you have any questions or issues with your sexuality, you can come to our Advice Centre to get information, advice, counselling and support without prejudice. Our hosted charity, Breakout Youth, provides youth groups for 13-21 year olds who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transexual or who are unsure.

The sexual health clinic is open every Thursday from 12-3pm at our Advice Centre and is an appointment only clinic. Appointments can be made by phoning 02380224224, by emailing [email protected] or by speaking to a member of staff at the No Limits Advice Centre.

 

Girl Talk, Boy Talk

We deliver a single sex educational programme to year 9 students in schools across Southampton, Portsmouth and Hampshire to give you the opportunity to find out what people value in a relationship and how you can make informed decisions about sex. The Girl Talk, Boy Talk sessions are run over 4-7 sessions during school term and consist of fun and interactive group-based discussions which cover topics such as puberty, consent, healthy relationships and young parenting.

The educational programme contributes to and enhances the wider PSHE programme as part of the curriculum rather than replacing classroom-based lessons. The smaller group sizes with sessions over 4-7 weeks allow the students to build relationships with each other and the facilitator. The safe environment encourages them to ask the questions they want the answers to and to make positive lifestyle choices around relationships and sexual health.

Students will:

  • Increase knowledge of emotional and physical changes that happen through puberty and dispel any myths
  • Explore what individuals’ value in a relationship, including where sex fits in to a relationship
  • Explore how alcohol or drugs impact on making informed choices about sex, relationships and contraception
  • Understand how effective contraception use prevents conception
  • Understand the risk of unprotected sex and acquiring an STI
  • Increase confidence to practice ‘safer sex’ using barrier methods of contraception
  • Develop self-awareness and self esteem
  • Identify local supporting agencies

A listening ear

You are still the only people I ever talk to about this stuff and it’s good to know you’re there.
