About this event

PLEASE NOTE: Zoom links for webinars will be sent to delegates the day before the training; or if the webinar is in the evening, at midday the day of.

The c-card scheme is administered by the Youth Team at Terrence Higgins Trust in Suffolk and we provide support to our partner agencies Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.

The c-card scheme enables young people aged 13 - 24 to access safer-sex resources, free of charge from a number of outlets across the county.

Any individual registering young people to the c-card scheme must have attended training before they can issue condoms and other safer-sex resources.  An organisation may have several c-card trained members of staff (e.g. pharmacies, colleges, schools, hostels, youth clubs) to ensure that condoms and advice can be provided at all times, or a professional who works with young people at various sites (e.g. social workers, young people's workers, community nurse) may choose to register so that they can offer the service via a number of different venues.

What does this half-day workshop cover?

Participants will learn how to:

  1. Consider safeguarding, Fraser competence and the law with respect to young people
  2. Discuss issues concerning sexuality and gender
  3. Register young people to the c-card scheme
  4. Undertake a condom demonstration with a young person
  5. Distribute condoms to young people
  6. Order safer-sex resources

Organiser Terrence Higgins Trust Suffolk (THT)

Organiser of C-Card and Chlamydia Screening Training (Webinar)- Terrence Higgins Trust

Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) is the UK's leading HIV and Sexual Health Charity.

 

In Suffolk we are working in partnership with Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust to deliver outreach services to people living with HIV (PLWHIV), young people, men who have sex with men, black and minority ethnic groups and others who are at an increased risk of poorer sexual health.

 

We have a particular focus on providing outreach testing for the National Chlamydia Screening Programme, condom scheme (c-card) registration and condom distribution, HIV point-of-care testing and behaviour change communications with hard-to-reach groups.  Our team also provide social support for PLWHIV and give advice on subjects such as benefit entitlement, housing, debt and immigration.

 

Our services are delivered across the county with training offered in Ipswich, Lowestoft and Bury St. Edmunds.
