The refuge provides residential support to women and young people fleeing from domestic abuse.
Many of the residents in the refuge are reluctant to discuss their sexual health with unknown professionals. While resident in the refuge they are able to establish trusting relationships with refuge staff enabling these conversations to happen in an environment in which they feel safe and supported.
A number of our residents routinely disclose engaging in 'risky' sexual behaviour. The work we do with women can include empowering them to be able to better negotiate intimate relationships. Whilst we encourage women who are recovering from abuse, to consider abstaining from intimate relationships, some will still do so. It would be very useful for our staff to be trained and able to distribute condoms to support safer sexual behaviour, when a need is identified.
