Parents and guardians

We wanted to create an area on our website for parents, to explain who we are and answer some of your questions about us as an organisation as well as sources of support for you as a parent.

We are a sexual health organisation, funded to work with 13-19 year olds in Hull for sexual health prevention work.  We are a collection of workers from various backgrounds in health, youth work and social work.  Cornerhouse is young people focused and we have a number of projects that can deliver work with young people in different ways – see what we do

A number of these projects can offer one to one support to work around, sexual health, healthy relationships, risk taking, puberty, sexuality etc.  To make a referral for one to one support click here.

The Young People’s Drop in is a great resource where young people can as the name suggests literally drop in and access support, information, and equipment.  This includes STI testing, pregnancy testing and condoms on a daily basis, as well as a family planning nurse twice a week, and a health worker offering full screening for STIs on a Wednesday afternoon.  For more information call 01482 336322.  

If you would like support for you child or young person but don't know where to find it, please do drop us a message on our 'jivo chat' which you will find as a pop-up at the bottom of this webpage.
