We work closely with The Zone, which welcomes 13-25 year olds. Based in the centre of the city on Union Street, the Zone provides free and confidential sexual health and advice, delivered by trained volunteers and specialist clinical staff from other agencies.

All the Zone clinics are walk-in and do not need a specific appointment. They provide:

  • information on relationships and sex
  • free condoms
  • pregnancy testing and advice
  • referrals to other services
  • general support around issues affecting you
  • contraception and emergency contraception
  • screening for chlamydia

Young people under 25 can also access enhanced service pharmacies for chlamydia testing and treatment, as well as Emergency Contraception needs.
