Open Doors

Sheffield Open Doors is a network of teenage health services all over the city. The services are run by specially trained nurses, youth workers, learning mentors and other staff. All Open Doors workers have trained to provide a free and confidential service run along the same guidelines as Sheffield Youth Clinic.

All services provide free condoms, free pregnancy testing and screening for chlamydia (which is the most common sexually transmitted infection in young people under the age of 25).

Useful documents

In this section, Open Doors service providers can download information about the project and some of the forms (including stock request sheets) that they need to provide the service to young people within their organisation.

The aim of the risk assessment form is to identify any safeguarding concerns and the form should be used in conjunction with your organisation safe guarding procedures.
