Forth Valley’s Sexual Health Improvement Service aims to improve the sexual health of its population and to reduce inequalities.
We work with third sector, local authority and NHS partners taking a partnership working approach to build capacity in a range of organisations to enable them to positively influence the sexual health of the people they provide services for.
We use various techniques such as providing information, staff training and development, conducting research and needs assessment or developing staff policy and guidance.
Our work is aligned to meet the outcomes of the National Strategy for Sexual Health and Blood Borne Viruses and The Pregnancy, Parenthood and Young People Strategy:
- Providing Free Condoms to those who most need them
- Facilitating Learning and Education for Staff
- Public Information and Communication
- Supporting Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood Education in schools and early years establishments
- Supporting the needs of Care Experienced Young People
- Providing Parents and Carers with support on communicating with children about relationships and sexual health
- Providing information and support for men who have sex with men
- HIV information and prevention support for Black African Communities
- Supporting People with learning disabilities to experience positive relationships
