SEXions is a confidential sexual health service for young people aged 13-19, and up to 24 for young people with disabilities.
Although based at The Hub (Level 5, Tower 3 in King’s Mill Hospital) and at Newark Hospital, SEXions works within the community to provide group sessions in educational settings, and offers community drop in centres that young people can access for:
- chlamydia testing,
- pregnancy testing,
- advice & support, and
- C-Card services.
SEXions operate a confidential text message service.
We also give one-to-one support and advice surrounding all aspects of sexual health including sexually transmitted infections, contraception, healthy relationships, online safety and access to other sexual health services.
Young People can refer themselves into the service, as can other organisations on behalf of the young person.
