PASH (Promotion, Awareness and Support on Sexual Health) works with people who are homeless and insecurely housed in Brighton and Hove to promote better sexual health and improve access to sexual health services.
PASH is a confidential and non-judgemental sexual health service that works with people from BHT’s First Base Day Centre (where it is based) and people living in hostels and other locations around the city.
The project improves the sexual health of clients accessing the service by:
- providing advice and education about safer sex practices and sexual health issues
- supporting people to undertake sexual health screening for sexually transmitted infections and blood borne viruses (including Hepatitis B, C and HIV)
- supporting people to access chlamydia screening
- arranging vaccination for Hepatitis B
- promoting the Brighton and Hove C-Card (condom card)
- promoting condom and other contraception use including LARC (Long Acting Reversible Contraception)
- distributing condoms, lube, internal condoms (Femidoms) and dams
- providing support to people with enduring sexual health conditions to access sexual health services
