Outreach and education in Buckinghamshire

Brook, along with with Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, are working to ensure communities can access support and self-manage their own sexual and reproductive health in an effective and holistic way.

Find out about how we can support professionals, schools and organisations in Buckinghamshire.

Targeted and community support

Brook delivers targeted programmes in a range of formats to support service users in a variety of communities. Through these programmes, we explore specific topics in detail, using informal education techniques and small group work. Sessions can include activities, reflective exercises, presentations, handouts, films, storytelling, and conversations with Brook staff.

Topics can include healthy relationships and boundaries, consent, puberty, masturbation, introduction to sex, contraception, pornography, gender and sexuality, sex and the law.

These sessions are aimed at service users and organisations working with the following groups:

  • Disabled people, including those with special educational needs and learning disabilities
  • People affected by domestic abuse
  • People for whom English is an additional language
  • Asylum seekers
  • Homeless people
  • Young people in care and care leavers
  • Sex workers

1:1 support for young people

Brook offers one-to-one support to both adults and young people. Our support consists of an early help programme which aims to empower people to improve their own health and wellbeing. For adults, (18+) we provide bespoke, responsive and needs led provision which could include:

  • supporting individuals to make decisions about their health and wellbeing
  • making referrals to other services where relevant
  • provide ongoing engagement via a support plan. This could be a short term intervention or a longer term package of support.

Brook also offers a one-to-one support programme specifically for young people aged 11-18 called MyLife. People are referred based on agreed criteria: poor sexual health outcomes, gender and sexuality, healthy relationships and pregnancy choices. Once a referral has been made, we then deliver a short programme (4-6 weeks) tailored to meet specific needs of the person.

Youth health champions

This is an accredited, guided learning programme for young people aged 18+ that involves completing four units of study with a Level 2 Award from Royal Society of Public Health. This course is ideal for young people with an interest in sexual health and wellbeing. The course will be delivered by Brook Education and Wellbeing Specialists, through both online and face to face sessions, and participants will be assessed based on a workbook or a portfolio.
