Myths surrounding sexual health and young people were addressed when a Pendle speaker representing Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust’s Sexual Health service presented at the first British Association of Sexual Educators’ conference (BASE).

Sue Roscow, Community Sexual Health Development Lead for Pendle, delivered a presentation entitled: “What do teenagers want from us?” which focused on young people and the information they really require when it comes to sexual education and dispelling myths.

The team operates screening services, sexual health education and drop-in clinics to males and females of all ages across East Lancashire.

Sue Cpstick, Clinical Business Manager for Sexual Health at Lancashire Care, said: “There was a real sense of momentum throughout the day with delegates travelling in from all over the world to make the first of The British Association of Sexual Educators’ conferences.

“Sue should be really proud that we were able to put our stamp on such a prestigious conference and share knowledge with some likeminded experts in the field.”

The conference was held at the University of Warwick and saw over 100 delegates and 10 speakers from a broad range of backgrounds unite to discuss all aspects of sexual confidence and empowerment.
