Valentine's cards to promote safe sex
HUNDREDS of Valentine’s cards will be distributed to older teenagers as part of a safe sex programme in Halton.
The Expect Respect campaign is encouraging young people in Widnes and Runcorn to value each other and not to pressurise partners into having sex.
It also warns about the dangers of unsafe sex in a bid to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.
Halton Young Addaction will be handing out photo keyrings, love heart chocolates and advice information.
The initiative also publicises confidential drop in clinics which offer teens advice and help on sexual health matters.
For more information, contact Young Addaction on 0151 257 2530.
