Terrence Higgins Trust iCaSH Sexual Health Initiative

Categories: News | Community Larder

Working as part of a new initiative with SOFEA, the Terrance Higgins Trust will provide a plethora of sexual health services to 13-24 year olds through SOFEA’s Community Larder in Milton Keynes. Established in 1982, The Terrance Higgins Trust is the UK’s leading HIV and sexual health charity; and working in partnership with the Cambridge Community Services NHS Trust, the organisations will collaborate to provide all sexual health services in Milton Keynes.

The programme, called iCaSH (Integrated Contraception and Sexual Health), will include services such as professionals training, chlamydia screening; as well as HIV awareness, prevention and testing for all ages. In addition, there will also be the C-Card Scheme; a system where youngsters can register to get access to a range of free condoms, femidoms, lube, dental dams as well as host of information and advice on sexual health.

The Terrance Higgins Trust also includes a substantial sexual health education initiative for youngsters seeking information concerning their sexual health. Carried out within an outreach setting, the initiative includes a one-to-one intervention system for youngsters to learn about sexual health and relationships, sexual health and screening sessions; as well as group sessions centred around sexual health, contraception, consent and the law, healthy relationships, sexuality and online safety.
