Condoms are cool! So why are so many sexually active young people not using them?

For many, it is embarrassment, confidence and not having the skills to have a safe sex conversation! This workshop provides an open and honest introduction to safe sex and contraception. And includes everyone’s favourite classroom activity ‘the condom demo’.

The workshop uses the contraceptive display kit to teach young people about the full range of contraceptive choices available. Young people will be taught about the body to enable them to fully understand the contraceptive methods explores and learn which methods of contraception protect against both unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. The workshop explores the barriers which may prevent young people from accessing information about contraceptives or attending sexual health services and shares how to get further advice, including how and where to access local confidential sexual and reproductive health advice and treatment.

Among women aged 16-49, the lowest levels of contraceptive use are found in the 16-19 year olds.

Figures released by Public Health England today show that young people aged under 25 continue to be the group most affected by sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
