UMBRELLA SEXUAL HEALTH SERVICES AT THE FACTORY

Birmingham Youth Service, in partnership with Umbrella Sexual Health,  offer young people up to the age of 25 a number of free sexual health services.

 

Condom Distribution

Condoms are available in a range of styles and sizes.  Condoms can be collected from our Umbrella Drop in sessions on Tuesday and Thursdays 12-2pm, or ask a youth worker at Thursday Evening Youth Session.

 

STI Kits

If you are worried that you may have a sexually transmitted infection, you can collect a self-testing kit from The Factory to test for Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia.  You can also order kits online from Umbrella and get it delivered to The Factory.

 

What do I have to do?

Just pop in during our drop-in times and have a conversation with a member of the Youth Work Team.

 

Who will we tell?

The service is confidential.  Nobody will be told about the discussions you have had with Youth Workers unless staff believe that you or somebody else may be at risk.  This will be further explained to you.

 

Sexual Health Clinics

The first and third Monday of each month Umbrella run Sexual Health Clinics from The Factory.  These clinics are for young people aged up to 25 who require further services than those offered in our drop in sessions.
