What is SAFE?
The SAFE website is a way for young people in Bath and North East Somerset to get the free information, help and advice on sex, relationships and contraception.
SAFE (Sexual health Advice For Everyone) is a local branding scheme available to all young people’s services providing sexual health information and advice in Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES). The brand represents services which are confidential, have friendly staff, provide up to date information and resources, and which are accessible to young people. The SAFE brand was officially launched in April 2009 and was re-launched in 2011 along side the new look C-card scheme.
