Supporting young people's sexual health

Our website

The new Healthy Respect website is now live!

We are proud to announce the launch of our new website – a space where all young people aged 13-18 can access high-quality sexual health and relationships information.

Some of the great new features of our website include:

  • inclusive language
  • simple text
  • well organised information
  • focus on key messages
  • direct links to services
  • easy to see and read font
  • optimised for mobile phones

Redesigned in consultation with young people, for young people

While most young people navigate the internet with ease, many have reported they have a difficult time finding sexual health information that they trust (this was reflected in The CONUNDRUM Project).

We carried out consultations with young people and listened to their feedback about content, navigation and functionality, making sure that LGBTQ+ young people and those with additional support needs were consulted with.

Brightly coloured tiles organise information into topics, so young people can easily navigate the pages and quickly find answers to their questions. We believe that our content written following accessibility guidance can be a great support for practitioners in providing sexual health information and services to young people.

Dedicated professionals’ area for those working with children and young people

To better support you in your role we created a place where you can find essential information on:

  • training and events;
  • up-to-date sexual health and wellbeing resources, including support to deliver accessible sexual health services;
  • latest news, resources and guidance.

Easy access to information about available services

User-friendly and easy to navigate search for sexual health services. The results can be filtered by area and the types of services provided.
