Young can call, text, email or send queries through Facebook

First published in Wiltshire

A live phone-in will take place on Thursday, December 13, where young people can get advice as part of a campaign to promote sexual health.

The Wrap It Up For Christmas campaign is being run by Wiltshire Council and is to help promote safer sex and healthier relationships amongst young people. 

The live surgery phone in will run from 7-9pm on the council’s local youth online radio, Spark FM. 

Young people will be able to call in live, text, email or send their queries in advance by Facebook private messenger.

Listeners will be able to get advice on sexually transmitted diseases, and the myths surrounding them, contraception and local No Worries clinics.

Maggie Rae, corporate director for public health, said: "During the party season we see an increase in young people aged 15 to 19-year-olds accessing services for emergency hormonal contraception, and also a rise in positive chlamydia results in early January.

"We hope the campaign will raise the profile of safer sex and healthier relationships, and the radio phone in will give young people the chance to find out the information they need in advance to prevent poor sexual health outcomes."
