Welcome

Update 28.09.2020

 

We are pleased to confirm that all service provision will continue as normal here in the Centre.  We have all the health & safety protocols in place and all measures are in place to ensure that our staff, volunteers and service users feel safe and confident in coming into the Centre.

We are asking that you wear your mask until you meet with a staff member at the door.  You will then be guided through the process.

 

The Centre is only open for drop-ins on a Monday evening to attend the young women’s clinic – Ilash.

 

If you need information or would like to make an appointment, please contact us on 074 9124985.

 

 

 

 

 

 

30th June 2020 – Sexual Health and Coronavirus

With the last of the exam results just out for school and college, and shops and businesses opening up again, it’s really starting to feel like summer. The Sexual Health Information Project put together this handy infographic about the things you need to think about. We want you to be smart and stay safe –  and always seek consent.

 

 

 

 

Latest Update June 24th

Ilash will re-open from Monday June 29th. We are asking that anyone attending please wear a mask (it protects us and it protects you!) and adhere to social distancing. Someone will be there to meet you at the door and explain what’s going to happen next.

Please Note: There might be some delays due to the new measures – it’s all a learning curve so bear with us.

 

We look forward to opening our doors again!
