More Choices for CHOICES

Following the success of our CHOICES team working with 4 schools in the last 12 months, we are delighted to welcome Outwood Academies Brumby & Foxhills to the VANL CHOICES service, taking the total of schools we are currently working with to 6. Analysis of last year’s figures show that 1,170 young people were supported last year through the programme and just under 6,000 condoms were distributed, 83 chlamydia kits were distributed and 11 young people were referred for further, long-term contraceptive advice.

In recent years the number of teenage pregnancies in North Lincolnshire has dramatically reduced, at a far great pace than many other regions of the country. We are proud to have played a significant role in this work, and would be happy to work with your school or group to deliver Sexual Health CHOICES – please contact Ann-Marie Loader on 01724 845155 for more information.
