Outreach to distribute resources
Trade Sexual Health in Leicester undertakes outreach in gay bars and clubs as a means of giving out safer sex resources including condoms and written materials. For example, to promote the national GMFA CHAPS campaign Count Me In, outreach workers created a sandwich board promoting the campaign and asked men to “sign up” to it by putting their thumb prints onto the “hand” printed on the board. Men were also given Count Me In leaflets to take away. The outreach worker also organised entry discounts to clubs for men wearing the wrist band distributed with this campaign. This enabled workers and volunteers to see who had been approached and ensured men were actively seeking the worker to get a wrist band.
