Promoting good sex and relationships is important to ensure young people have positive sexual health throughout their lives.
Services in Richmond and the local area
Sexual health services from several national and local organisations are available to young people in Richmond.
Getting it on
The Getting it on website offers information for young people aged 13 to 19 about sexual health and drug and alcohol services in South West London.
Young people under the age of 25 can get free condoms from the Come Correct scheme available across a number of boroughs in London, and those aged between 16 and 24 can get a free chlamydia test.
Get it - METRO sexual health
To facilitate young people’s access to condoms and STI testing, METRO has introduced an online service for under 25s living in Richmond to order free condoms, lube and chlamydia tests.
Sexual Health South West London
Visit the Sexual Health South West London website for a full list of clinics, including drop-in sessions for young people, across Richmond, Wandsworth and Merton.
Clinics offer contraception and sexual health testing, treatment and advice. The services provided in these clinics are free and confidential. You can book an appointment yourself or attend in an emergency. You do not need your GP to refer you for care, and you do not need to live locally.
Please call the booking and advice line on 0333 300 2100 to check which clinic you should use. Lines are open 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and on Saturday mornings. A recorded message gives useful information outside of these hours.
