Support for young people at risk of sexual ill health

Organisation : Caledonia Youth
Grant Amount : £ 33,000

A flexible one-to-one support service for young people in the NHS Lothian area who have been identified as displaying extreme risk-taking behaviour and/or at very high risk of sexual ill health or unplanned pregnancy. The service would be targeted at young people for whom existing health education is either inaccessible or ineffective. This could be as a result of the young person’s learning disability, their exclusion from mainstream school, their substance or alcohol misuse, their domestic circumstances or any combination of these factors. A multiagency approach would be used when required.
