STAFF at Alternatives Pregnancy Advice Centre in Sleaford are raising awareness of the free services they provide, while also announcing they are more than happy to speak about their work to spread the word at meetings and social groups.
The centre offers help and support to anyone who needs a safe place to talk, with free pregnancy testing and confidential support to anyone facing an unplanned pregnancy, as well as information on sexually transmitted infections and contraception.
For anyone who has suffered a miscarriage or stillbirth, they hold 10-week counselling programmes and aim to educate young people who may already be, or are feeling pressure to become, sexually active.
Centre manager Angeline Hennessy-Thompson said: “We have just secured funding to equip our Youth Café which facilitates a safe place to relax and provides a series of interactive teaching sessions for young people to make healthy choices with regard to their sexual behaviour, lifestyle choices and relationships.
“Also we will serve schools with interactive presentations relating to self-esteem, peer pressure, media pressure and sexual behaviour.”
