WISH Training Sessions

 

The WISH (Wellbeing in Sexual Health) training programme is commissioned by Buckinghamshire County Council. All courses are facilitated by Terrence Higgins Trust, a specialist sexual health service that is part of the new bSHaW (Buckinghamshire Sexual Health and Wellbeing) service. The overall aim of the WISH programme is to promote the sexual health and wellbeing of all Buckinghamshire residents and to equip those working with individuals of all ages, gender, ethnicity, disability or sexuality with the knowledge, skills and tools to develop resilience, respect and to promote consensual healthy and safe sexual relationships.
