The Contraception and Sexual Health (CaSH) Action Team is a sexual health promotion service for students at the University of Brighton which is funded by East Sussex County Council for our work in Eastbourne and Hastings. The service is delivered by a team of fully trained student volunteers and student staff, and our aim is to deliver services which:
- Increase awareness of sexual health issues among the student population
- Reduce the incidence and prevalence of HIV infection and STIs
- Reduce the incidence and prevalence of unintended pregnancies
- Promote positive sexual health and wellbeing within the university communities
We do this by running campus based sexual health drop-ins, providing free Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea screening, free contraception, and signposting to local services. We also provide volunteering opportunities for students looking to gain experience in health promotion work.
