Targeted Outreach Service

 

The Targeted Sexual Health Outreach Service is for vulnerable young people to provide information and support around their sexual health. This Service is across Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset.

The team also provide teacher training for all secondary schools in Dorset (inc. Poole and Bournemouth) to support them to deliver Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) confidently and effectively using their Core Package that they provide schools for free. RSE will become compulsory in September 2020 and it is crucial that schools have trained staff ready to deliver this subject competently.

All Outreach events are coordinated through the team. They provide Health Promotion and STI screening events for those identified as potentially at risk. This includes promotion of all Sexual Health Services and opportunistic screening for Chlamydia as part of the National Screening Programme for 15-24 year olds.

The Targeted Outreach team offers 1-1 supports for individuals who require more focused work with RSE issues.

Due to COVID-19 our Targeted Outreach Referrals are closed at this time. We will reopen them in due course. Thanks for your patience.
