Familiarity with sexual health services increases, engendering trust through credibility Accessing services when I need them (for prevention and support) Finding out about sexual health and local services, reducing stigma and increasing peer norms How the tiered model develops motivation and self-efficacy to access services:
Sex & Relationships Education (SRE) Sexual Health Nurse Team with aim for wider multi- agency input. Targeting courses e.g. predominantly young male students, courses with high drop-out rates for unplanned pregnancy. Chlamydia Screening Events. Developing peer-led activity through the college network e.g. Want Respect.
Evaluation Since April-Dec 09 across the 3 college sites, average monthly contacts during term time: 44 clinical contacts 140 tier 2 contacts Average of 15 young people seen each week in each site. ‘’Give you some good advice’’ ‘’Very good and informative’’ I feel No Limits is a great idea in college, it helps me with personal matters and helps with sexual health’’ ‘’Good information, very friendly =) ‘’ ‘’Very useful, good advice’’ ‘’If it wasn't for No Limits alot of my friends would have had diseases’’ ‘’Give you good advice about contraception’’ ‘’Extremely helpful and one of the few outlets to discuss sex in a non- patronising manner’’
