Current Public Health sexual health contract outlines LGBT+ communities as a target group for greater outreach support. South Tyneside's integrated sexual health service has a key priority of proving support, advice and outreach services for locally identified at risk populations, including LBGT+ communities.  The service works in collaboration with key stakeholders locally in order to engage with vulnerable groups and understand their particular needs in line with the evidence base.
