The new Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham Sexual Health Partnership (led by Brook and its partners, NAZ, Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and Shape History), which commenced on the 1st of April aims to increase awareness of sexual health promotion services available to people from BAME backgrounds in the boroughs. 

The approach to this work is guided by the belief that sexual health has to be scrutinised under a wider lens, including culture, religion as well as structural barriers like immigration and housing. It is crucial that services are shaped by the people they serve, and the conversation must include the most vulnerable in our communities. 

Promoting factual and community specific messages around sexual health remains crucial during lockdown, so we are in the process of gathering current attitudes towards sexual health and related services through digital research. 

In the coming few months we will have a dedicated web page and email address for this project, but for now, if you have any queries, please contact the project lead/ service manager Ineala Theophilus ineala.theophilus@brook.org.uk or for any questions regarding the survey email Leila Hashemi leila@shapehistory.com
