Youth Healthwatch North Lincolnshire; Sexual Health Survey Launch
Our small team of Youth Healthwatch North Lincolnshire volunteers have recently published a survey to find out what sexual health services young people in the area access, and what their thoughts/experiences of them are.
The project came about after an initial survey we developed which asked what was important to young people in North Lincolnshire. The answers which were the most popular included mental health, education and healthy diet, and sexual health.
Our team of young volunteers decided that Sexual Health and Relationships would be a good topic to begin with, and began by researching what services and resources were currently available for people to access. They looked in particular at websites such as Virgin Care Sexual Health Hub, Brook and the NHS website to evaluate what they liked about the different sites, whether they felt they were user-friendly, and whether the information provided use was clear and useful.
