Young People's Survey

Picture of staff at Pride behind the stall  At Nottingham Pride 2023 we conducted a survey for young people to explore what they knew about Nottingham's Sexual Health Services and testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). On average we had 200 responses per question.

We found... 

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

  • 94% of young people surveyed had heard of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
  • 14% of young people couldn't confidently name at least three Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

The role of education

  • 53% of young people hadn't been told at school/college/university where the sexual health services are in Nottingham 
  • 79% of young people would like to access more information about testing in education 

Accessing Information around sexual health services and STIs 

  • 54% of young people would like to access more information about testing on social media 
  • Young People chose Instagram as the social media platform they would most likely use to access information about sexual health clinics and testing for STIs 
  • Only 38% of young people have accessed this website to get information about STIs or testing
